to create wellbeing through art and design.
As human beings, we are part of nature, our bodies are hardwired to respond to our natural environment. We can reset the nervous system by curating with the textures, forms, patterns, shapes and colors that we find in nature to blur the connection between nature and our interiors spaces.
Jesse Woolston is a media artist, classically trained composer, and sound designer who works to fuse technology with creativity. Woolston creates these audiovisual pieces with AI, computation, environmental design, and music composition to challenge our interpretation of nature and history.
Do we interpret our world through a myopic lens of fixed memory, or are we willing to unlock the doors of perception and consider a place with an open mind, as if experiencing it for the first time? Jesse Woolston meditates on the interconnectivity between the natural world and the tonalities inherent in colors recognized on the visible light spectrum. By designing a meticulous soundtrack that combines classical string orchestration with electronic sequences, the artist asks us to consider our interpretation of places through an entirely new sensory experience.

Petecia Le Fawnhawk is a modern surrealist whose work depicts monuments against minimal and ethereal desert landscapes. Petecia is based in Los Angeles but she spends a lot of time traveling from one desert to the next across California and the Southwest. The desert is her greatest inspiration. She often places herself in her work wearing monotoned attire standing next to monuments that appear immensely large in comparison to her own stature. The monuments are made of distinct geometric shapes to seek truth in form. In doing so, she aligns herself with nature to visually depict her own journey as she explores herself and the world.
Petecia practices with photo collage, video, sculpture, and land art. As an artist whose work extends across media forms it surprises many to learn that she is self-taught. As she strips her work of man made constructs she creates a transcendental realm that reflects the inner workings of her soul.
Anthony Samaniego is an American visual artist born and raised in Los Angeles, California. After graduating from Cal State University of Northrise in 2006 with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Economics, he worked in the entertainment industry as a sales analyst for Warner Brothers.
Always in search of a challenge, Anthony started shooting video. His technique in looping subtle movement in what otherwise looks like a photograph solidified his standing as a pioneer of cinemagraphs that utilize the .GIF file format. A variety of brands such as TRESemme, Gap, and Veuve Clicquoet hired him as a cinemagraph artist to capture their products in his unique style. In addition, shooting events such as the Oscars, New York Fashion Week, and Coachelle also enabled him to work well under pressure and garner an understanding of social media marketing and advertising.
While cinemagraphs have been Anthony's forte as a professional artist his recent endeavors have led him to learn 3D animation. With hard work and determination he learned how to encompass abstract and conceptual computer graphics into his cinematic video and photo work; this producing and developing an exclusive skill set that blends photography, videography, and 3D art. This style of new media is a modern approach that can be used globally to present themes and ideas in the ever-evolving art and advertising world. As an enthusiast of impression, he is often inspired by art history; seeking to bring a voice to nature that pays homage to trends of the past, but reinterprets this through modern mediums and perspectives.
