Wanted - Dead or Alive
a videographical retrospective
with songs, interviews, movies
In the Kaleidoscope theme of "Behind The Scenes" with research and narration by Michael Ney, let's dive deep into Bowie's biography and voluminous creative output. See the development of his genius from aspiring rock star to the innovation of making his life into a work of art - culminating in his triumphant final album and stage show released just before his passing in 2016.
"It's the terror of knowing what the world is about..."
Over his multi-dimensional, culture-encompassing five-decade career, David Bowie has proved himself many things: glamorous rock star, sultry singer, boundary-pushing performance artist, sexual icon. (REFERENCE LINK) So reads the opening of a review of the museum retrospective from 2018, "David Bowie Is".
David Bowie was an English singer-songwriter and actor. He was a leading figure in the music industry and is considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, acclaimed by critics and musicians, particularly for his innovative work during the 1970s. His career was marked by reinvention and visual presentation, with his music and stagecraft having a significant impact on popular music. During his lifetime, his record sales, estimated at 140 million albums worldwide, made him one of the world's best-selling music artists. In the UK, he was awarded ten platinum album certifications, eleven gold and eight silver, and released eleven number-one albums. In the US, he received five platinum and nine gold certifications. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996. (REFERENCE LINK)

Ray (authors of The Cultural Creatives: How 50 Million People Are Changing the World) gives the term "Integral Culture" to the growing subculture also referred to as transmodernism, and which he refers to as the "Cultural Creatives".
