Are You Breathing? – Info.


After the storm of likes Ralphie’s Portal got for the superb picture “Are you breathing?” that I found on SpiritualNetworks.com, I became curious as to who the artist might be. As it happens it comes from a mysterious Swiss think tank, called “Imaginary Foundation“. They decided to broadcast their ideas, using T-shirts, which is a rather unusual approach. Here is another example, called Brainforest:

Here is some information from the company’s about page:

The Imaginary Foundation is a think tank from Switzerland that does experimental research on new ways of thinking and the power of the imagination. They hold dear a belief in human potential and seek progress in all directions. The small clandestine team is headed up by the mysterious “Director,” a 70-something über-intellectual whose father founded the Dadaist movement. Avoiding direct publicity, the team has sought clothing as an unlikely vehicle for bringing their ideas beyond the academic realm and into popular culture.

In his vision for the Imaginary Foundation, the Director knew that the human mind has more than one mode, that indeed it has an “ecology” of being. He knew that imagination, intuition, inspiration are basic to psyche… A philosophy of research began to form: imagination as fundamental to all learning; artistic making as a model of integrating vision, materials, structure, and imagery.

“What makes true vision is the poetry of life and the richness of nature”
