About this project
My name is Kahn Santori Davison. Welcome to my t-shirt and photography prints company: Primal Immortality.
The t-shirts are apparel for artists and creative professionals. I started this business because I've always wondered what has driven me to become a poet and a photographer. In fact, I began to wonder what drives all of us. I think that it’s to become immortal. It’s to create a piece or body of work that will live forever. It’s to make sure that whatever your contribution to society is – that you do it at a level where it will outlive you. As an artist, isn’t this something we all want? To produce the kind of work that will be talked about and studied forever?
The reason why we know the names Pollack, Gordon Parks, Frost, Langston Hughes, Basquait, is because their work is timeless. It’s immortal. It will never die. And as an artist, isn’t that the one thing we all want? To produce the kind of work that will be talked about and studied forever?
Now, the word primal is used the same way you might use the word “throwback.” So, do you see images of film cameras, tapes, boom boxes, records, typewriters, and other artistic tools that technology has left behind? I used these to remind us that some of the best art was made with minimal tools. You don’t need technology to be immortal. The human being is what makes the art immortal, not the machine.
We’re asking for 3 thousand dollars.
1. To build up our inventory for some of our shirts.
2. To keep the print series going. Got Film & Sonic Boom- a tribute to old school hip-hop technology.
Themes you will have with Primal Immortality: wearing who you are, reaching back to move forward, who you want to become, being immortal.
What makes this t-shirt company different from all other T-shirt start-ups? Primal Immortality is dedicated to encouraging mankind to create art and to create the best versions of itself. You only live once but your contributions can live forever.
Primal Immortality is about capturing the identity of the artist, no matter the medium. The main purpose of the artist is to create work that will be timeless, that will continue to live and breathe even when the artist is no longer here. That’s what being immortal is all about.
Help me build something meaningful.
