Psychrophiles or cryophiles are extremophilic organisms that are capable of growth and reproduction in cold temperatures. Temperatures as low as −15°C are found in pockets of very salty water surrounded by sea ice. They can be contrasted with thermophiles, which thrive at unusually hot temperatures.

A mesophile is an organism that grows best in moderate temperatue, neither too hot nor too cold.The habitats of these organisms include especially cheese, yogurt, and mesophile organisms are often included in the process of beer and wine making.

Saprotrophic nutrition is a process of extracellular digestion involved in the processing of dead or decayed organic matter. It occurs in saprotrophs or heterotrophs, and is most often associated with fungi and soil bacteria.

Our Pineal Gland, shaped like the Pinecone, is at the geometric center of our brain and is intimately linked to our body’s perception of light. It modulates our wake-sleep patterns and circadian rhythms.

The Pinecone is the evolutionary precursor to the flower, and its spines spiral in a perfect Fibonacci sequence in either direction, much like the Sacred Geometry of a rose or a sunflower.

Throughout the span of recorded human history, Pinecones have served as a symbolic representation of Human Enlightenment, the Third Eye and the Pineal Gland.

This series explores a huge array of pagan rituals, mainly related to the winter solstice and spring renewal, focusing on the common myth of the “wild man.”  While some cultures depict him as covered in flowers or straws, others possess the features of bears, goats, or horned and hairy beasts.

It appears that the tradition of men dressing up as wild animals and monsters, which dates back to neolithic times and shamanism, is still very alive nowadays. The mythological figure of a “wild man” represents the complicated relationship humans have with nature and life and death cycles.

For two years, French photographer Charles Fréger has been traveling throughout European countries and trying to capture the spirit of what he calls “tribal Europe” in his “Wilder Mann” series.

"I think both the process and the outcome of that process can be meditative and I’m interested in art that has a meditative quality. For me drawing is a starting point to exploring energies and dynamics that are unseen but felt"

Louise Despont’s delicate geometric configurations drawn onto vintage ledger papers reveal a personal mytho-hermetic dictionary of esoteric cosmologies and knowledge systems. This kind of procedural precision obsessed drawing, where one has no idea of the end result, could be seen as a kind of channeling of forms. Here drawing is a mantra for invoking figurative manifestations via the nested loops of hand-eye-brain feedback loop algorithm.

It seems that Louise’s secret ideographic structures have similarities to the pages of the famously mysterious Voynich Manuscript which represent the alchemical phase transitions and syncretic relationships between the animal, vegetable and mineral domains.

At a time when the handmade aesthetic is going from strength to strength, Eggertsson’s work is entirely different. No sketches, doodles or brush strokes. No cutouts or found objects. His style takes advantage of pattern rules, vector shapes, lines and plenty of flat colour. It’s a bit like pixel art, softened with a nice analogue twist.

Siggi Eggertsson is not your average graphic designer, going against today’s return of all things handmade and choosing to use just a few of his own secrets, which are in actual fact, age old. He rigorously follows vectors, grids and patterns like the great painters of the past. Without discipline, the Icelandic graphic designer wouldn’t be able to keep his pixel art wild looking.
