IMMANENCE STUDIO—Beyond transcendence, remaining within, indwelling, a plane of immanence built on experimentation.

A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east.

There is a crime here that goes beyond denunciation. There is a sorrow here that weeping cannot symbolize. There is a failure here that topples all our success. The fertile earth, the straight tree rows, the sturdy trunks, and the ripe fruit...And the great owners, who must lose their land in an upheaval, the great owners with access to history, with eyes to read history and to know the great fact: when property accumulates in too few hands it is taken away. And that companion fact: when a majority of the people are hungry and cold they will take by force what they need. And the little screaming fact that sounds through all history: repression works only to strengthen and knit the repressed. The great owners ignored the three cries of history.

And now they were weary and frightened because they had gone against a system they did not understand and it had beaten them.

IMMANENCE is a creative studio specializing in creative direction, design, and content creation with a focus on collaborations within fashion, art, architecture, publishing, and cultural institutions. IMMANENCE Studio produces projects ranging from printed matter, such as books and ephemera, to identities, campaigns, and more with an interest in the intersection of art, culture, fashion, and commerce.

Across varying projects and media, a priority is placed on the investigation of content over style through a deeply involved dialog between production, process, context, and materiality. This is a conversation, let's talk...

IMMANENCE was founded with collaboration in mind. By working with individuals and teams that extends to include a broader circle of creatives IMMANENCE is able to meet each project’s requirements while exercising its full potential. We are nimble.
