In 1995, David Bowie and Davide De Angelis began collaborating on album art for Bowie's controversial and dystopian album 1-Outside, a creative working relationship that spanned across several years and many different projects, including the development of art for the album Earthling and concepts for stage sets, books, products, websites and art shows.
Inspired by their creative collaborations and the potent artistic vocabulary born out of them, Davide De Angelis has spent years crafting a powerful, visionary tarot deck that expertly weaves together intricate sacred geometries, alchemy, street culture, futuristic cosmologies, erotic sci-fi images, punk rock, experimental typography, magic, and the sacred teachings of the plant teachers and mystery traditions.
Davide's life-long fascination with the miraculous system of Tarot, combined with his deep desire to explore and visualise the nature of reality, has given birth to rich and complex forms of graphic art – ‘potent visual alchemy’ as Bowie described it. The Starman Tarot is Spirit Technology.
The invitation to become the cause and creator of your experience is encrypted into each card. The true form of Magic, far away from the downgraded version portrayed in the media, is brought into existence through your interactions with the cards, your words and your actions: new ways of being are opened through the creation of new contexts to explore from.
