Introduction

Event Horizon is a Crete based building for the arts, music and literature. A rural retreat for production and experimentation. This artist in residency opportunity offers private creative space free of charge, it is set in five acres of stunningly beautiful wild olive groves close to the sea. The building is created from used shipping containers and is completely insulated. Using the cosmological phenomenon of the Event Horizon as an analogy for art as a transcendent concept, there is time and space for creativity.
