Cartographic Bass Lines | HUGO Berlin Map

by BJ Panda Bear

The plan: simple. Head to Berlin for the HUGO SS19 show. Kiss some cheeks, snap some pics, have a dance, get back to LA. But months later, and numerous efforts wagered, the bass just won’t leave. At work, on the train, in the shower. At the beach! After a consultation with a mystic on Sepulveda, a plan is established: just let that bass be. Let it wash over you, let it assume, let it thump. For life is about acceptance. As HUGO is inextricable from Berlin, so then are the megahertz from your skull. In keeping, artist Ed Fairburn creates his interpretation of the German capital, met with backstage imaging from said fabled HUGO show. Wie schön!
