The Quest for Inspiration is an immersion into the world of Alexandre Deschaumes, evocative landscape photographer. The artist portrays the world landscapes with a dreamlike and artistic vision. It was after many solitary wanderings through the autumn forests that he developed his own universe. Guided by the dreamy and enchanting atmosphere of the wilderness, he tries to transform his emotions into some form of evocative beauty.

Dalila Kayros is a musician, composer, singer and noiser from Sardinia, Italy.
She constantly study as a singer to explore and extend her vocal possibilites. She belongs to the most radical contemporary music scene. Her music is the perfect marriage between industrial noises, traditional instruments, electronic music and multiple vocals layers.
Bow down to hear the popular Sardinian tradition in this intrinsic and irreverent connection with a fictitious modernity, as naked victims of an ancestral propaganda.4 hearts
Architect and CG artist Oleg Soroko from Moscow.
It must not be thought that pure decoration is lifeless. It has its inner being, but one which is either incomprehensible to us, as in the case of old decorative art, or which seems mere illogical confusion, as a world in which full-grown men and embryos play equal roles, in which beings deprived of limbs are on a level with noses and toes which live isolated and of their own vitality.
The confusion is like that of a kaleidoscope, which though possessing a life of its own, belongs to another sphere.
Iceland is the Great Kingdom of photographers and videomakers. Sverrir Thorolfsson is one of them.
He spreads his secret skills in all these waste and majestic lands, collecting moments and amplifying atmospheres.
It is possible to think the same of the universe. Without an eternity, without a sensitive secret mirror of what passes through every soul, universal history is lost time, and along with it our personal history – which rather uncomfortably makes ghosts of us. (J.L.B.)5 hearts

João Ruas (born 1981) is a visual artist from São Paulo, Brazil.
João Ruas paints a haunting world inhabited by enigmatic figures and regal beasts awash in a maelstrom of mysterious energies. His explorations of the darker realms of the spirit evoke states of emotional turmoil, spiritual hunger and troubled passion.
Weaving together history, mythology and cryptic symbolism in a misty dreamscape where twilight is ever at hand and the bounds of gravity seem optional, he describes an ethereal mythos that is somehow deeply personal and disquietingly universal at the same time.6 hearts
