We strive to draw the curiosity of our Butter family to Art in its many forms. We explore the ways of assimilating Art while observing the harmony Nature offers through Art. Identifying the patterns and designs found in nature and within human culture, we work to motivate our Butter family to honor and enjoy it through artistic expression.
From the sound stage to the lab, we want to expose as many people as we can to culture through our lens.
When a technology appears, the ButterSide gets curious. And this starts a process of exploring and testing the new limits through Art. (below: creation of a sculpture for capturing, modeling and printing in 3D).
For example, mutual trust workshops take interesting forms on the ButterSide. Here, in the Dogon village of Kani Kombole, during a tour with Exobus in Mali, each child painted another one's face, then let the model return the favor.
No mirrors are present so the focus can remain on the process.
The trip typically involves rare vinyl records, new technology experimentation, fine arts and interactive sensory installations. The sensation is one of immersion and an eco-system forms around and among the artists and Art lovers present.
Whether lost in one's own thoughts or fully engaged in a collective experience, the visitor appears to find a peaceful place to settle down in the Butter Lounge.
