Welcome to the suite, “You Are Here”, a tribute to those who dare to dream and to choose a different way of life. To open your mind and make space for the heart is hard work, but the rewards are worth it. The artists of this suite have been choosing lives built on their own heart's desire, and therefore they are spending most of their time of the year doing ice projects and ephemeral art projects together, all over the world.
So, please enter this suite, connect your heart with your brain and let them lead you through life.
