a Cube of One Way Mirrors
Reminiscent of Sara Frucht’s Kaliedoscapes which also explore the interplay of light reflected on the interior surfaces of polyhedra, both Platonic and Archimedean – see this recent related post about her reVERB™ Casual Music Game – this article about a cube with flexible walls made of one-way mirrors has a neat video showing what happens when the attached bellows change the geometry from flat planar surfaces. I’d like to see a ‘walk-through’ gallery of Kaleidoscapes that allow visual and acoustical interaction with all the Archimedean and Platonic solids as an interior participant.
New York City Sacred Geometry Fest
We already mentioned this event in the January 2014 bulletin, but there’s still time left (as far as I know) to attend a conference about sacred geometry – and these don’t happen that often – in New York next month. If anyone attends (I would, but have prior commitments) please feel free to send me any interesting links or reports from this fest … and say hi to our colleagues! Here’s a page of links from their site, and an example of one of the many workshops at this event: Leonardo’s Mind: The Geometry of the Renaissance.
(2) Websites, Books, Videos, Imagery, Music and Quotes
Here are a few websites and links of interest to sacred geometry enthusiasts:
- Romanesco broccoli based-design anyone? This article explores shapes that may assist ecology, aesthetics and design.
- A fun video: Mathemusician Vi Hart Explains Space-Time with a Music Box and a Möbius Strip
- Thanks to my Mom for sending me this link with a lovely acoustic recording of cylindrical resonances: Singing Bowls for World Peace and Healing
- Organically geometric, this page of rock sculpture photography was from new age musician Iasos’ most recent bulletin.
- An interesting LinkedIn conversation (you can see where I chimed in) addressing “Do you know/use/ sacred geometry/golden ratio in your works?”
- Designer’s guide to the Golden Ratio
- “… I am trying to give people a sense of unity rather than build even more barriers.” says Mariam Nihal, author of an article entitled: Geometry key to Islamic art: Dana Awartani
- Ripples from the big bang? … Synchronistically, my niece is studying gravitational waves in space using laser interferometry.
- A Pinterest page: Geometric Inspired
- This designer uses a stellated octahedron a.k.a. star tetrahedron a.k.a. daVinci’s ‘stella octangula’ in her logo
- An article that explores Sacred Geometry and Unified Fields by MonkeyBuddha
- … and although it was a couple weeks ago (March 14), here’s a bit about The True Meaning of Pi Day … for fun
(3) Request for Submissions
Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn. I always enjoy connecting with both recent and long-time friends and colleagues and discovering new friends of friends :-)Thanks for your interest & support! 🙂 BTW, I always appreciate enthusiastic reviews on the Amazon SGDS book page, and the newer Amazon book page for The Geometry Code. It’s a good “win-win” way to cross-promote your work as well.
If you like to color with colored pencils (or other media), make 3-D fold-up geometric art, do stained glass, quilts, geometric arts and/or crafts, or just want an extensive reference/resource of geometric archetypes, patterns and essential line art, you might enjoy a copy of my first book, Sacred Geometry Design Sourcebook: Universal Dimensional Patterns.
If your leanings are more metaphysical … and perhaps whimsical 🙂 … you might enjoy my second book, The Geometry Code: Universal Symbolic Mirrors of Natural Laws Within Us; Friendly Reminders of Inclusion to Forgive the Dreamer of Separation. It was originally going to have geometry and Hermetic Laws/symbolism as a primary focus, but in 2007, a reawakened interest in the spiritual masterpiece, A Course In Miracles – thanks to Gary Renard – shifted the primary emphasis to an exploration of the two thought fundamental systems we all vacillate between, and how we can gradually shift our mind’s identity to the happy one.
