The Barista Who Could See the Future

Installations, media and paintings by Adam Turl - a continuation of Red Mars, Alien Commune, Coyote's Las Speech, The Great Call Out and The Healing Properties of Post-Industrial Debris


the story:

Alex Pullman, a part time artist and coffee shop worker, believes he can see the future. In his first vision, looking through his grandfather’s telescope, he saw a revolution unfolding on the surface of a colonized Mars. He then foresaw that on the eve of World War Three UFOs would appear in the skies. They froze missiles and bombs in the air and resurrected the world’s communards. In his third vision he saw a million people on rafts fleeing New York City as it drowned in the ocean. Scrambling for their lives they began to denounce each other – and each formed their own personal nation-state.

A note: Alex Pullman was briefly a member of the 13 Baristas Art Collective. In the mid-2030s he moved back home to southern Illinois.
