Nahum and Clare met in 2008 at the infamous Goldsmith’s College, University of London. An institution that has an outsized influence in shaping culture and the arts. At Goldsmiths they unearthed a deep fascination for the human mind and for the beauty and potential of the planet we inhabit.
Over the last decade, both Nahum and Clare have worked independently around the world, exploring the phenomena of humanity through very different lenses. As Nahum reached out to the science of the cosmos to illuminate the world within, Clare delved deep into the science of the brain to understand how we might thrive in this world. Nahum's explorations led him to work with NASA, ESA, Roscosmos and SpaceX to mesh culture and space. Clare's pursuits led her to train with The Flow Genome Project and complete a doctorate in Business Leadership to unlock the science of human potential.
Today they reunite to form a world-first partnership that fuses their unique expertise in art, outer space, philosophy, neuroscience, psychology, human behaviour and leadership. Explorations of the uncharted territories in inner and outer worlds that transcend the here and now. And establish the contours of the world being born.
Romero + Johnson is unique offering designed to unlock exponential mindsets on a global scale.
Nahum is an internationally renowned artist and cultural leader. In his work he employs outer space technologies, illusionism, hypnosis and music to guide audiences into otherworldly journeys to raise critical dialogues about the politics of existence.
Nahum has worked on various space missions for artistic purposes with the major space agencies including NASA, ESA, Roscosmos and SpaceX. He is the first artist to launch an interactive artwork into outer space in 2018. Nahum has served as the Chair for the Committee for the Cultural Utilisation of Space (ITACCUS), at the International Astronautical Federation (IAF) in Paris. In 2014, he was the first artist to be awarded the title of Young Space Leader for his unique cultural contributions to astronautics and space exploration. He is the Founding Director of KOSMICA, a global institute founded in 2011 with the mission to establish a platform for critical, cultural and poetic discourse on our relationship with outer space, space exploration and the impact of these activities here on Earth. The Institute develops initiatives that bridge art and humanities, the space sector and wider society.
As a cultural leader he has toured in various countries around the world presenting topics about creativity, innovation, interdisciplinary collaborations and diversity. Nahum has developed a series of unique performance-talks where he introduces ideas while performing on stage. He often presents his work alongside Nobel Laureates and international leaders in the fields of technology, science and culture. Nahum’s work has been widely exhibited in all continents including countries like USA, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Germany, UK, France, Sweden, Russia, Australia, Taiwan, China, Japan, Brazil amongst others.
Nahum received a B.Sc. in Computer Science from Tec de Monterrey in Mexico City and graduated with a distinction from a Master of Arts at Goldsmiths, University of London in 2008. He coursed the Space Studies Programme at the International Space University in Strasbourg, France and Haifa, Israel in 2016 where he currently lectures to future astronauts and space professionals.
Clare Sarah Johnson
Through the study of science, humanity and leadership, Clare specialises in unlocking exponential mindsets, optimal wellbeing and performance, using the peak mental state known as Flow.
Clare has been trained by the world leaders in Flow science, The Flow Genome Project to understand the neurobiology of optimal wellbeing and peak performance. While undertaking a Doctorate in Business Leadership, Clare has developed a world class leadership program drawing on the latest in adaptive leadership, applied neuroscience and positive psychology.
Designed to level up peak performance and optimal wellbeing this system delivers real time results alongside longterm and ongoing organisational development measured using a range of psychology, biology and performative metrics. Clare has extensive experience working for corporates, not-for-profits, arts institutions, start-ups, universities and high-performing leaders.
Previously Clare was the founder of Tinderbox Creative - a niche branding agency devised to create humans brands - brands people fall in love with. Using the science of connection and archetypal psychology she was responsible for creating and embedding brand strategies that took organisations to the next level. Renowned for her ability to turn each and every employee into a brand storyteller, Clare was instrumental to shifting organisations from transactional to transformational mindsets.
Today, Clare is also the co-founder of global wellbeing organisation KOTA - A System for Thriving Humans that exists to elevate the consciousness of humanity across the globe.
