We believe that imagination is one of the most important skills of the future.

 

We are creating a place devoted to imagination, creativity and living our dreams.

 

We are building an imaginarium.

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.

For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand,

while imagination embraces the entire world,

and all there ever will be to know and understand.”

– Albert Einstein

We will buy a piece of land in Sweden, build a giant landscape artwork that connects us with nature and becomes the foundation that knits a community together.

 

We would like to grow an exponential community of solutionists, imagineers, creators, philosophers, designers, builders, writers, entrepreneurs who actively choose to step into and exist in the unknown to discover, inspire and instigate new ways to initiate positive change. The place becomes a collection of effervescent dreams lived out in a co-created community on land we own together.

DESIGN

The Imaginarium will be a giant landscape artwork in the shape of an eye built somewhere in the vast, dark woods of Sweden.

 

The eye consists of a room and a garden. The pupil is represented by the room, an amphitheater. In the middle of the room is a well of water. The sky is reflected in the surface of the water. It has 12 steps down to the source of the water.

 

The theatre is surrounded by a garden with trees, bushes and weeds, it is the iris. As the colour of the seasons shift so will the colour of the iris. The circumference of the iris is 365 meters.

 

Our goal is to create a sacred place for the exploration of the unknown and unite people through imagination, passion and collaboration. It should connect us with both history, the future and knit the foundation for a community. A space to oscillate between the earth, the reality and the imagination. Between now and eternity.

We often forget that we are nature.

Nature is not something separate from us.

So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature,

we’ve lost our connection to ourselves.

– Andy Goldsworthy

OUR PROCESS

We design concepts that we do not have the answers to. Concepts bigger than ourselves; often impossible to what we currently have capacity to deliver. This actively requires us to step into and navigate the unknown. It is in these spaces that we are able to imagine scenarios that are beyond the norm and hope to discover new solutions to old situations.

 

Our creative and manifesting process transports us from a point of having NOTHING until we arrive at SOMETHING. Each time we live this process we learn a little more; stretch our understanding and grow our belief in what is possible.

 

The fuel and fire of this process is passion. When we design our lives with our deepest passions our dreams come to life and our creative energy is exponential.
