Ignited in 2012, The Third Eye magazine evolves at the crossroads of different artistic, alternative, indigenous and underground movements from around the world.
The Third Eye is all at once
Uniting a wild, colourful and global spectrum of
Voices, Visions and Energies,
From the Amazon rainforest to Berlin.
The Third Eye is an original concept created by Spirit-in-Chief Sophie Pinchetti, imagined as an open-ended multi-dimensional artwork.
Currently headquartered in London, The Third Eye is a global collaborative project connecting ideas and grassroots movements calling for a regenerative society based upon principles of peace, justice and sustainability. The Third Eye fuses Art, Dream, Storytelling and Journalistic Reportage.
Contributors to The Third Eye come from all around the world and include emerging young artists, photographers, and writers, major figures and artists such as Alejandro Jodorowsky and Yoko Ono, and indigenous leaders such as Chief Raoni Metuktire of the Kayapo tribe in the Brazilian Amazon and Huichol shaman and leader Don José Ramirez 'Uxamuire' from Mexico.
Published around Infinity O’Clock
The magazine is distributed worldwide across independent art bookshops, concept stores and influential galleries including the Tate Modern, Palais de Tokyo and MOMA as well as spontaneous distributions along the road throughout Planet Earth.
The Third Eye’s first issue was published and launched on the Summer Solstice 2012 in the UK in a limited edition of 1,000 copies.
Contributors include emerging artists and writers such as Catriona Rainsford, Benoit Paille, Noam Chojnowski and major artists such as Alejandro Jodorowsky and Yoko Ono, and indigenous leaders such as Chief Raoni Metuktire of the Kayapo tribe in the Brazilian Amazon and Huichol shaman and leader Don José Ramirez 'Uxamuire' from Mexico.

DIGITAL EXHIBITION CELEBRATING EXPERIMENTAL, AVANT-GARDE & NON-COMMERCIAL FILM Presents independent films from the past and present. Inspired by the visionary works of filmmakers and artists as varied as Jack Smith, Sergei Eisenstein and Maya Deren, The Third Eye Cinema explores the power and revolutionary potential of moving images, documentary and visual art as vehicles of change.
The Third Eye curates exhibitions and installations. In December 2012, The Third Eye held a special exhibition in the heart of the jungle of Chiapas in Mexico, near the ancient Mayan city of Palenque. In 2013, The Third Eye was invited to Berlin to create and curate the exhibition ‘Manifestations: An Exhibition by The Third Eye’ at AKA Galerie.
The Third Eye was born out of a collective recognition that a new rhythm must be created, one that can exist and evolve in balance with planet Earth and humanity. In order to address our planetary ecological crisis, we must develop solutions based upon principles of justice, peace and sustainability.
A potent fusion of art and the environment exists at the core of The Third Eye. We recognise the need to imagine, create and build regnerative alternatives, and fight the systems of oppression, of capitalism, patriarchy, bad trade deals, and colonisation, which plunder and commodify the Earth’s natural resources.
We believe that the time is ripe for post-modern and indigenous world-views to now come together to build a new story, a new dream, for a life-affirming future. As the best guardians of the natural world, indigenous peoples play a fundamental role in defending the global climate. The Third Eye celebrates indigenous culture and publishes inspiring stories with today’s indigenous leaders, activists and artists.
The world speaks of revolution, but we can no longer pretend that only the system must be changed. The mutation of the seed starts with our minds, the centre from which action emanates.
As artist ALEJANDRO JODOROWSKY says in the first issue of The Third Eye, we are working for 'MUTATION'!
The Third Eye works to re-infuse a sense of Magic and Mythos into the world: to celebrate Dream, Spirit, and Consciousness as essential forces in the creation and construction of our reality and society. Without these, any alternatives will be difficult, if not impossible, to adopt or imagine.
We will translate our dreams into actions.
Let us welcome the immaterial, the invisible, the irrational, the impossible and the infinite!
For all submissions, magic, enquiries, please send The Third Eye an email.
The Third Eye is open to Collaborations, Contributions and the Cosmos!
We Are One.
