Inspiratum – Derived from Inspirat (inspiration) and –tum (derived from or as a result of), a place void of politics where the mind is free to be inspired from the work, the ambition, and the creative acts of others. Inspiratum is the Flux that surrounds the camp, an invisible goo of inspirational energy that leaks through your eyes and ears and inserts that thought in your head, "That is cool, I want to build ______" or , "I want Storm to paint my body tonight."
