Rafal Kosakowski designed the book Into Magnificence—a thought tapestry by dramaturg Steve Valk. This book was a companion publication to the R.I.C.E. inaugural activity in September 2013. R.I.C.E. provided a home to international artists and thinkers to live and work amongst the community of Hydra. As a unique hybrid of festival, gathering and think tank, R.I.C.E. placed artists without the framework of a stage or the spectacle in the heart of the town.
