Following on from Pacifist Preppers Part I http://bit.ly/1fXLTFC maharishi present a continuation of the short film, also directed by Norbert Schoerner and starring Ricki Hall, further exploring the concept of the modern day pacifist prepper.
maharishi's Spring Summer 2014 collection focusses on the Pacifists Prepper's harnessing of the the Lunar Effect. The position of the moon and other planets have an enormous electro magnetic effect on the Earth, as well as its plants, plant growth and people. Featured heavily in the collection is DPM: Lunar Bonsai, a seasonal version excursion of maharishi's house pattern, Bonsai Forest which this time round is infiltrated by a textural photographic moon surface, within the pre-existing heavenly cloud shapes, from which magical bonsai trees grow.
The pattern also clads the G-Shock GD-X6900MH watch released in April 2014, which features a new printing process allowing total disruptive pattern coverage, as well as auto LED super illumination (ideal for use during lunar observations), a military spec gel shock resistance structure, a super tough resin strap and 200M water resistance; all features much valued by any genuine Pacifist Prepper.
This short film and DPM / camo pattern reinforce the concept that camouflage has its roots in nature and art rather than the military; a concept that Hardy Blechman spent nearly a decade researching before publishing his findings in DPM: Disruptive Pattern Material An Encyclopedia of Camouflage in Nature, Military & Culture.
maharishi aims to convey a strong anti-war sentiment through its use of camouflage.
