Welcome to Spiralis Ventures
Spiralism is the belief that out of chaos rises opportunity, and that events, people, and ideas are meant to be connected in a productive, meaningful, and directed way. Spiralis Ventures is founded on the deeply-held certainty that although there is misery and suffering in the world, there is also joy and hope and beauty. That the opposite of war, poverty, and desperation, is not peace and contentment but, instead, creation, productivity, and power.
In The Eye of the Spiral is a documentary film project featuring seven of Haiti’s most prominent living artists. Taking as its point of departure the notion of dynamic chaos incarnated by the incomparable writer-painter-philosopher Frankétienne, this film proposes a new narrative for the embattled Haitian Republic – a narrative steeped in the vitality, the mysticism and, ultimately, the hopefulness of artistic creation. Frankétienne has been on the shortlist for the Nobel Prize in literature and is a co-founder of a philosophical movement called Spiralism. (read more)
