Dr.Z featured in Warp Mag Japan

Recently featured in Warp Magazine Japan (Vol. 202 - 2014.1 +2) “Trip to Heaven” issue with a small interview in Japanese discussing the highlights of Johannesburg city, South-African street culture and some upcoming projects.

Architect Benjamin Lowder talks “Word Magic”

I am honoured to be personally mentioned in this talk by Illinois architect/ artist Benjamin Lowder ( around 21:55). During his art exhibition “Myth, Math & Magic on the 90th Meridian ” Benjamin talks “Word Magic” at Buckminster Fuller’s “Center for Spirituality & Sustainability.” He drops some knowledge and personal wisdoms explaining the intention of his art through quantum mechanics and the cultural importance of Rammellzee.


I recently found this video online, hidden & embedded inside a mix of other random clips…an extremely rare performance-art style interview with Rammellzee in his “Crux The Monk” costume. Crux is one of the characters in the “Alpha’s Bet” mythology with the description of “A time puzzler and dimension juggler. A maker of poisons”.

Unfortunately I do not have any more information about the origination or source of the clip, but I hope my reposting here on youtube will assist in finding a better quality version or other similar archived videos that might exist.

Recently the “Google Maps” Street View cameras documented the The Children’s Museum of the Arts in New York. By chance it was during The RAMMELLZEE Galaxseum exhibition, which presented the most comprehensive collection of works to-date. Take the tour around and spot the life sized Rammellzee & Shun-U standing guard!
