Photosynthesis Festival is a Collective Flow Event,
That means if your down with the flow, this is your event!
This year we are proud to take you to glorious Trout Lake WA, underneath the majestic Mt Adams, to celebrate life and energy in all forms.
Photosynthesis Festival, a Collective Flow Production, is dedicated to building strong, sustainable communities by bringing together nature, music, art, and education. This year we intend to place special focus on sustainable living through permaculture, renewable energy, water conservation, holistic healing, yoga, waste reduction, and tool making.
Join us August 7th - 10th as Photosynthesis Festival starts its annual celebration of life and the beauty we behold here everyday in the northwest. This years event expects to involve music on 3 stages, with a fourth area devoted to community gatherings and chill beats. Come and take place in the photosynthesis of self and MAKE ENERGY!

Ephraim Peniston is a Seattle-based artist who finds life too short to keep to one medium. His graphic arts in collaboration with web media take on proactive initiatives that communicate movement and change, his fine arts explore the abstract, aiming to portray the knowledge and beauty he finds within life and his photography attempts to capture and further expand upon the intricate world around us.
Ephraim is probably most noted for his 'rust' paintings, where he uses metals to leave impressions on paper. This is a medium he has been exploring and building on for years. At Photosynthesis Festival, he will be sharing with us some of his newest works both live and in the gallery.
Cameron Nagashima is not bound by medium or materials. His life and mind exists in a constant state of creation, whether through photography, painting, or dancing down the streets with the music of the city." Life is creation there for life is art." At 24 he is now working on multiple series of Art photos call," Making something before could" and a painting series depicting hypersurreal trees.More info coming to www.PhotosynthesisFestival.com
GeoGeorge Atherton seeks to create medicinal narratives. My education empowered me with a vision of how I could use my art to disseminate information that serves the causes of social justice. Since then I've been channeling my energies into launching a career as a professional comic book artist and animator. In my work I plant and nurture the seeds of revolution, encouraging viewers to rise up, connect with each other and work to propel us into a brilliant new stage of human evolution.
In 2005 Jacob Aman started an artistic project called the Rebirth of Totem with the intent to build upon NW tribal art and use it as a platform for downloading and rendering other-dimensional mindscapes. Now the next phase of this project is commencing, born out of my interest in biochemistry, mathematics and tryptabeing complexes--currently this phase of the artistic experiment is called mandalic chemistry. The plan is to show molecular interactions within cells as spiritual interactions, adding sacred geometries and artistic rendering over documented biochemical processes. After this phase is underway, Jacob will begin to paint new imaginary plant life as an attempt to attract new plant forms into existence (i.e. this is a precursor to plant breeding).
