The Existential Action Team’s Founders and Artists Damon Soule and Sparkles Positron designed and led a team of talented artists and crafts workers to create a village centered on a week long live collaboration with Artists Mars 1, Damon Soule, Oliver Vernon, Nome Edonna and David Choong Lee. Its been over a decade since these artists first began collaborating, over the years these five artists have had the opportunity to create and collaborate in front of a generation hungry for inspiration.
Going beyond the boundaries of the studio into the open air under the sun the stars the rain and now their second eclipse. The environment created for the Oregon Eclipse was inspired by love! By remembering a time of innocents when we dared to dream and those dreams carried us to the tree tops, to a mystical village of interwoven forts and swings, a tea house with potions & elixirs, the hearth, music, a jam room, creation unfolding before you, laughter and tears, play and creating all under a total Solar Eclipse what better medicine! We believe in creating environments that balance both the Feminine and Masculine energies while honoring the elements. We strive to create spaces that are personal, that acknowledge all senses and that can transport you into an altered state of consciousness while feeling safe and supported. We want to inspire and bewitch!
