Changing the world through the power of art
It made me wonder why people make choices that make them unhappy even though we were all born to be happy. I came across this book in my 20s, and it was like a ray of hope. In this 700 page tome, Fritjof analyzes the issues facing contemporary society from his standpoint as a physicist - his view of life, medical care, economic models, psychological approaches, environmental crises and so on. Approaching the issue from multiple perspectives he cogently argues that we are heading for a paradigm shift.
In the fifteen years that followed, I continued my search for clues to this paradigm shift, through my work, constantly learning. However, far from finding a solution, as social turmoil deepened, I increasingly felt in danger of losing my vision, of stumbling into a place with no way out. It was then that I found a renewed sense of hope through Kunihiko Yazawa’s philosophy and our art practice. In 2001 we launched various projects as part of Yazawa’s art practice, and in 2004 we founded White Ship, Inc.
It hasn't been smooth sailing, but it's been an unforgettable journey full of inspiring encounters and the creation of beautiful and powerful artworks, and through this process time and again we've felt the boundless creative energy that we as humans all possess.
We would like to say a big thank you to all those friends who have shared our vision, co-created experiences with us and supported us in countless ways. We hope to continue our work helping people around the world rediscover their sense of wonder and beauty, and their creative potential.
