Thanks, this was really good.

You guys touched on this but it's fascinating how many of the key themes in Ganges are present, if perhaps less developed, in Gloriana and Wild Kingdom. Gloriana has the expansion and unfurling of a single moment (Ganges 6 but also the infinite grid of Ganges 4) and the interest in explaining scientific phenomena visually (Ganges 5), while Wild Kingdom has Internet-era consumerism (Hot New Thing) and humor. I think Huizenga's sense of humor is one of his under-discussed but very important qualities.

Of course many people touch on key interests again and again but the original Gloriana came out when Huizenga was 24...most haven't found a fruitful direction as an artist that early on.

You've done it again gang.
Keep 'em burning boys.
