Uncommon (and visionary) places #2. Pasaquan.

Pasaquan was built on 1958 by Eddie Owens Martin, who called himself St. EOM.
What an amazing place.

"At a time in the late 1930s, during an extended and fever-ridden illness, Martin experienced the first of a series of phenomenal visions that would prompt and continue to drive his artistic efforts for the rest of his life. In the initial vision, he was confronted by a trio of extraordinarily tall personages who identified themselves as people of the future -- special envoys from a vaporous land called Pasaquan, a place where the past, the present, the future, and everything else all come together."

Vaya sitio tan increible.

"A finales de la decada de los treinta, durante un periodo de fiebres, Martin comenzó a tener las primeras visiones que le empujaron a desarrollar su pasión artística por el resto de su vida. En la visión inicial vio a un trio de personajes extremadamente altos que se identificaron como gente del futuro -enviados especiales de una tierra vaporosa llamada Pasaquan, un lugar en el que pasado, presente, futuro y todo lo demás están unidos"
