1) a creative consortium and exchange project founded in 2010.
2) an instrument used to block the view of a bright celestial object allowing the careful observation of a fainter one.
Inspired by a pantheon of fringe thinkers and risk-takers, Occulter seeks to fan the spark of one basic human necessity: a personal sense of wonder. Occulter’s organic membership creates challenging works in a variety of mediums, while its exchange component works to nurture stimulating relationships with its supporters at the collector, retail and wholesale levels.
Occulter is a response to the convoluted systems plaguing the contemporary art, design and fashion worlds. As a group, we benefit from shared resources, collective bargaining for opportunities, and a like-minded sphere within which to share and build on challenging ideas. We use Occulter to promote our desire for risk-taking, experimentation, and prolificity.
