The Parallax Effect on Long Hair

By Cristina-Elena Pestrea, Institute for Cultural Diplomacy.

Arts and Culture are very powerful tools in promoting democracy and Global Peace.
Ian Gillian Singer and Song writer in the Deep Purple music band talks about the “parallax effect on long hair” during his Lecture at the Annual Conference on Cultural Diplomacy organized by the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy in Berlin in December 2012. His powerful speech shares aspects of this growing up as an adult and reckons on how different events and moments in his life influenced the person that he is today. One of the most iconic elements influencing his personal evolution was his choice of wearing long hair. During his speech, Ian Gillian remembers several episodes happening while travelling to “strange” parts of the world and beautifully underlines the existing cultural differences and the way he and his band managed to overcome them thanks to music and humor.
