Evolution of the headdress. Sun Ra was famous for his outerwordly outfits that seemed like some kind of Egyptian-Saturnian future combination. Perhaps most interesting is how this idea has been picked up and adapted over time in later Afrofuturistic genres. From the Sun Ra album pictured above that simply shows Sun Ra in a field of dark wearing an Egyptian headdress we move on to Afrika Bambaataa in a much more clearly space themed background wearing a more futuristic throwback to and Egyptian headdress. Finally, we reach Ras G, wearing sunglasses and enveloped in an almost computerized headdress wormhole combination. Just as the black field in the Sun Ra cover has transformed into outer space with Afrika Bambaataa, the background of the Ras G cover combines with the headdress, expanding forever outward into new Afrofuturistic developments.

I think we’re still stuck in that agricultural mindset, where we imagine that we can shape the Earth. Sure, we can do that. But the Earth has the power to shape us much more powerfully. To survive climate change, we’ll have to realize how dependent we are on our ecosystems for our own survival.
