architecture and design and to create proposals, quite different from one another, which 
also involve visual arts, cinema, social sciences, new lifestyles, and sustainability.

find of the week

Have any of you come across this blog called "Mystic Medusa"?

We discovered it here at wonder | wander | world, were immediately hooked, and want to share it with you all!

We came for a book review on Leonora Carrington's "The Hearing Trumpet".

We just can't stop reading stuff on this site - it's too outrageously fun!

And no this is not an April Fool's Day prank!
