Blue Oasis

Hometown: Concord, CA


The Bluehouse Collective holds that the conditions under which we live and labor in an information age society are the product of human artifice. The constructed nature of our world allows for the possibility of different interpretations as well as distinct practices. Members of the Bluehouse Collective hold that it is their inalienable right to actively participate in building the society of which they are citizens. We support active thinking and involvement in our individual and collective lives to bring about a dialectic of action and reflection to serve as a catalyst for growth and improvement. The collective seeks to expose the current mechanisms that structure our lives so that we may challenge, modify, improve or affirm. We seek to ensure that each of us exists in a society responsive to and supportive of our individually directed lives within the collective whole.
