  • Description

    Description

    We are a livable sculpture that is an experiment in renewable, closed-loop building. We are building the foundation of what is becoming a place for creative people in Los Angeles, Silicon Valley, and New York to recharge their batteries by being suspended in a cocoon of great art, great company, great food, and mineral hot springs.

    We want to start integrating young creatives into that fold by inviting people like you to participate in our projects. We want to collaborate with people versed in painting and sculpture, architecture, horticulture, renewable energy, film, writing, communications and the culinary arts to create an atmosphere where we're always creating, we're always documenting, and we're always eating good.

    We want to help build a new generation of artists and link them to those who are already successful in the industry. We've already taken steps in that direction by: building a space people that attracts highly creative people, and opening that space for people to enjoy the what we've created and spread the word. Now, we're looking to build a rotating team of people, a family if you will, that can help us to expand in all directions and to help grow our vision for this place. I promise you it will be an experience you will never forget.

    Not to mention, the desert is a place to really quell the distractions in your life and really focus on getting to know yourself again or to extend your creative practice. We are sort of perched on the edge of the world here. It's extremely quiet, very little light pollution, and the air is extremely clean. We are also in a town that has some of the most mineral rich hot springs as well.

    Help

    No matter what skills you have, there is always an aspect of physical labor here and that's the main help we need. As far as the help is concerned, we are constantly building structures, roofs, walls, platforms, stairs, bottle walls, solar hot water heaters, conditioning our soil, planting trees, shrubs, and vegetables, sorting material, running irrigation, running electrical, plumbing pipes. installing solar panels. Then, there is the aspect of wanting to spread the word on this place and documenting our progress which requires some help with social media, filming and writing about this place.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This is like an artistic boot-camp. You're going to see what it is first-hand to try and live a full-on creative lifestyle (and create history in the meantime) without having to deal with the bullshit of a 9 - 5. You are here to collaborate on our vision for living sustainably, and in turn, be able to leave invigorated to do the same or stay and help see our project to it's next heights. Hopefully, you'll be able to feel the same peace and purpose that has taken over our lives since we started this project three and a half years ago and it will possess you as well.
