We help artists connect with new audiences.

The arts provide powerful opportunities to share ideas, inspire curiosity and motivate people to shape their world. We help artists showcase their work through curating installations, project management, and securing opportunities to tour installations abroad. 

 
 

Children of the Light

We’re helping Amsterdam-based artists Children of the Light explore new opportunities to showcase their work in North America. Contact us to book existing installations or to discuss new commissions.

Valley of the Possible

This refugio in Cañón del Blanco, a remote part of the Chilean Andes, offers artists, scientists, writers and other creatives the time, space and resources to re-conceptualize our relationship to nature. We assist with multiple aspects of creating the foundation and producing the artist residency.

 
 

Simon Heijdens

Following the successful commission and creation of Silent Room at SXSW, we’re seeking new opportunities to provide audiences a moment of true silence and sensory deprivation in this custom anechoic chamber installation.

Infinity Room

This immersive environment by artist Refik Anadol offered attendees a moment of contemplation and reflection during me Convention 2017 in Frankfurt. His use of light explores the distinctions between the actual/fictional and physical/virtual realms, which aligned with the program’s exploration of how technology is reshaping society.

 
 

Nicole L'Huillier

We asked Chilean artist Nicole L’Huillier to create unique sound compositions for the headset channels where attendees tuned in to listen to sessions. These unexpected soundscapes offered a surprising and mysterious intervention for the audience at me Convention 2017.

Symbiosity of Creation

This 20 year long installation by Polish artist Elvin Flamingo brings together different ant cultures in glass incubators to explore our interconnectedness with nature, and consider post-human cultures. Showcased at me Convention 2018 in Stockholm, this work has a life of its own, interacting symbiotically with it’s author who becomes part of the art work itself.

Pi in the Sky

This experimental aerial art piece by ISHKY was displayed during SXSW as part of the art program, and is considered the largest ever art work displayed in Texas. Airplanes spelled out pi to decimal 1000, offering the entire city an unexpected celebration of Pi Day (March 14).

Augmented Reality Mural

Together with artist group Re+Public, Qualcomm and IEEE, we created the largest-ever augmented reality mural at the time, spanning over 80’ in downtown Austin. Through a custom mobile app, viewers could explore and interact with a dynamic additional layer of the mural.

 
 

Tree

Tree by London-based artist Simon Heijdens is an interactive installation exploring the rarity of natural processes in our highly planned urban environment. This art work is a striking, beautiful recognition of nature’s remaining impact in our cities. We installed Tree at the U.S. Courthouse and other locations in downtown Austin.
