Agent X, ‘Mills Parsec’, 2017, Addicted Art Gallery

Good To Know: Artwork is shipped directly from the artist.

Series: 2017 Fall Collection Agent X's new series deals with questions about dystopia. Are we in the middle of a cataclysmic decline in society? Is it too late to turn things around so we're living in a utopia? Agent X has a few words about the direction his new series has taken... “Planet Earth has gone to shit! Between Trump, misogyny, racism, war, genocide, etc. I had to get off the planet and so did my art. The way I did this was by going back to the movies that inspired me as a kid, and now as an adult - films like Interstellar, Blade Runner, Star Wars and other Sci-Fi cinema.”

Signature: Hand signed and numbered

Arty-Fact: 'Mills Parsec' is about Jeff Mills, coveted DJ, electronic music producer and the mind behind the soundtrack of 'Interstellar'. Mills' music incorporates sensory effects, themes of space travel, technology and the cosmos.

Parsec, a unit for expressing distances to stars and galaxies, is used by astronomers and represents the distance at which the radius of Earth’s orbit subtends an angle of one second of arc.

In 'Mills Parsec', red beams of horizontal and diagonal lines represent light travel. Electric blue lights represent dimension portals. A spaceship lies within the swirling brown and gold in the lower left.
