Jerūiyq is a promised land from Kazakh legend, passed down from the fifteenth century through generations of oral tradition. It serves as a metaphor for searching, exploration, improvement, and invisible knowledge. Ancient tales describe the efforts of the philosopher Asan Kaigy to lead the nomadic people to lands free from disease and hunger, where time grants eternal life.

The website introduces a journey through essential artworks exploring the themes of time, space, and eternity. The ethereal textures, lines, and shades create a sense of lost paradise and infinite travel through the cosmos.
