SUBJECT The infinite, the transcendental, the unseen and visions of the future ‹ these are the artistic quests of COSMIC DREAMS, an exhibition that gives colourful expression to the mystical yearnings of a new generation. The show explores trance, ³alternative² realities and the psyche, who tap into altered states of consciousness through visionary colour, mind-altering patterns, morphing forms, and visions of the infinite. At the interface of reality and fiction their images and installations extend to spacial floating forms. Formal experiments with futurist materials prove their visual metropolitan background and test sustainable form models. Their work is inspired by nature, by the cosmos, by the vastness of the Western landscape, and yet is rooted in a specific urban sensibility.
