I learned a lot about inclusion by working with master blenders of cognac at Hennessy. I found out that is only by mixing many kinds of eau-de-vie that cognac becomes something that is extraordinary. Isn’t that cool? So just one or two eau-de-vies aren’t enough — you need a true diversity of them to make a remarkable cognac. I love this!
So along that line of thinking, I took the opportunity to bring together two people that I especially admire — and see what kind of blend might happen. I was SO fortunate to bring together Giorgia Lupi and Kaki King on a special project for Hennessy that mixed visual art with music in a way that’s hard to describe, but best experienced as … the art.
Please check out the video above to learn more about this special pairing of Lupi and King! Giorgia has a post about it on her site.
