- Future Mythology -
- HYACINTH -
Hyacinth, the human lover of god Apollo died accidentally by a disk thrown by Apollo. No power, medicine or magic could heal the wounds made by fate. Apollo turned Hyacinth’s blood into a flower. A beautiful product of love, celebration and symbolism.
- HYACINTH NYC -
Made out of blood, tears and sweat. Customized Sneakers. Customized by hand in the Lower East Side, New York City. Filling in what is missing. A comment on the present. Without taking it too seriously - you never know what it will be.
Designed, created and produced by Tobias Ulmer, almost named HYACINTHUS - if his grandma could have convinced his mom. He is a creative director, New York resident and born in Germany.
The future is stupid.
(Jenny Holzer, 1982)
