Indirect functional art informs, advises, persuades, and reason with spectators with the intention to transform them into better beings, thus improving humanity. Indirect functional art entails achievements in the visual, literary, and performing arts: videos/films, books, illustrations, curriculum(s), paradigms, etc.  

Be inspired and empowered to think creatively to construct human-centered art and designs; you have the power to use your imagination, thus produce original ideas in the production of your artistic work. Create meaningful expressions: ideas, feelings and values represented!

Life Is What We Make It, so Let Us Make It Worthwhile 

We are indirect utilitarian, storytelling artists that work to empower and inspire engineers to develop more human-centered designs. We also encourage and enable other artists to tap into their authentic form of self-expression to preserve and communicate our cultural values. We use art and design as a vehicle to communicate meaningful, essential messages! 

Our function is to serve humanity through ingenuity: cleverness, originality, and inventiveness in the storytelling arts which stimulates and permits growth, or self development and human flourishing. With love and hope, we're communicating simple truths and burning away limiting beliefs.
