They are appropriate for an 'inner journey' of meditation. The art is not designed to be displayed to the viewer; it is meant to surround the guest: 'Only after entering and living in a room the artwork will be complete. The guest's presence and use of the room is an integral part of the artistic creation.' Our clients are even encouraged to change a different art-room each night to get the fullest experience.
