Head Dead West

Head Dead West is a suite of symbols meant to simultaneously honor and haunt the roots of American culture as we know it. HDW parodies our longstanding Apocalyptic tradition while also shamelessly tapping it. It evokes our love of the wild while decrying our destruction of the environment. Most of all, the HDW symbols serve as modern totems to our undying spiritual instincts, and to the unavoidable doom set before us all to choose the images and stories through which we will come to know each other and our world.
