NOMADIC ALTER NATIVES
PASSING THROUGH / LEAVING OUR MARK
What is a NOMADIC ALTERNATIVE? perhaps a play on words which is something we like to incorporate into our work...
It can be an alternate state of being always adapting to this ever-changing environment,
or it's our statement to the world that we as expressionists are able to adapt to the status quo simultaneously thriving with skills and techniques to handle the current stream of design and literature...
On a more deeper level, it can represent to us the journey of the soul, passing through body after body, the world to world, in dire attempts to make it back to our source.
Either way, you look at it its captivating from the moment you say the word. Double takes are normal, they wanted to have their work have the same effect.
