"There’s a disease that’s killing our parents and no one seems to be doing anything about it." —Seth Rogen on Alzheimer’s.
5.2 million Americans have Alzheimer’s—a disease without any treatment, cure or prevention. The disease could affect 16 million Americans by 2050, costing $1.2 trillion.
i did some graphics for this story (including this animated gif right here)!
"werner herzog eats a sandwich" series
one time i went to see werner herzog speak at a showing of “cave of forgotten dreams.” in the film, one of the interviewees, a researcher, talked about dreaming of the cave paintings, so I asked herzog: did you also dream of them?
herzog said, actually i don’t dream — except about once every five years or so, i’ll dream about something totally mundane, like eating a sandwich.
when i was painting these, i was thinking about how coupling between mortals and immortals can be ecstatic, but often fatal. the title is a reference to a German pun (the word/similar words mean both “bird” and “fuck”) and was, admittedly, applied after the fact.
