Long have I been fascinated by the first thought of my day. Think about it: what was the first thing that crossed your mind when you woke up this morning? It’s eerie that today’s first thought from yours truly, upon looking up at the poster-covered wall in my bedroom, was, “I haven’t bought any new art in a while.” Which is perhaps a good thing, according to my wallet. According to my insatiable need for pop culture art all over my walls, it’s completely unacceptable. Luckily, mere hours later artist Kevin Tong and the folks at Mondo announced that they would be releasing an art poster for Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity. Problem solved.
The poster is gorgeous, as seen below. And better yet, the announcement comes with a video showing Tong’s process of building the orientation-free print. Says the artist, “to emulate the dizzying effect of the movie, I deliberately designed this poster to have no true orientation i.e. there’s no right side up or down, it can be presented either way.” Click on through the jump to see both the video and the poster, which goes on sale this coming Tuesday, November 5.
