   Sunny,  We visited the Guggenheim Museum on 5th Ave. With our luggages, we are not allowed to enter the museum, and eventually, we came up with a very funny strategy by dividing into 2groups, one a group visit the museum, the other group stay on the street and look after the luggages. This museum designed by Frank Lloyd Wright is a masterpiece, the space inside is unforgettable

Tribal Identity


Being in a Tribe already starts to form and show our personalities, our implication, to create connection, meaning and change.

The current tribal map is created by our social energy artist Neeha Ghandi to prove the spirit and the start an off-grid movement. The identity map has the its inspiration ground on our Unit Tribe Master Enric’s tribe map.¬†tribe map

Tribe Vision of our exhibition space


We are currently researching into the best ways to archive and display our work, our interest, our visions, our passions, our thoughts, our ideas ….. towards the transformation of the House into Home, and the setting off from the AA formal studio spaces towards the Off-grid singularity community.

The collages are a new form of expression set by our tribal display artist Peng Qin. Now the space can be seen as a 2D collage, but taken further it can be opened into the 3D world.
