Our practice is dedicated to life-long self directed learning. Applied evolution through seismic change; technological, social, psycho-social, bio-mechanical, geo-political and cultural awakenings reconfigure the world. Many sleep through the dawn of a new reality.
This is magical realism, where fun is fun, research informs deep rumination and we love exploring ideas and perception. Aided by increased mobility and connectivity, our floating studio is global and intergalactic.
Let us help you and your endeavour/bar/ brand experience/community co-creation and/or business strategy/spiritual need.
