Hit play for a nice chilled vibe edit, thats far removed from all the contest footage recently! Here’s the word from Sebastian:

“About 3 years ago Michael Husser told me he is going to live in New Caledonia. First thing I did was to check on the web. I had no idea where it’s located and found out it’s an island in the South Pacific Ocean – far away!”

Giannis Caternellis – Originalidade #4

With pure love for the sport and inspired by the Master of Creativity contest, this is my painting!”
