Materia Prima: An Expression of Matter
THIS DECK WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER IN MID-SEPTEMBER OF 2019
"We are stardust
Billion year old carbon
We are golden
Caught in the devil's bargain
And we've got to get ourselves
back to the garden”
Woodstock ~ Joni Mitchell
And so it is, all things in life are collective. Nature is inescapably cooperative. We share with the stars, the clouds, the bees and each other the same elements that create the complex world we live in. This cooperative endeavor is what forms life and is the bewitching mystery of the Periodic Table – the Materia Prima of our unified existence.
This powerful message of unification that circles throughout the Table of Elements is what inspired us to create "Materia Prima." This deck is an expression of the Periodic Table concentrated in a deck of 84 cards. Each chosen element is given its part in the cosmic play of Life, conjuring matter in the soulful, playful language of the imagination.
This is an introduction to a journey we want you to join us on. In the weeks ahead we will be sharing more artwork from the deck itself and the artistic process we've chosen to create this work over on our IG page: uusidesignstudio.
Hope to see you there!
