The only thing we can rely on in the three dimensional world is impermanence
The essence of all you see, only exists because of a very profound order of certain repeating mathematical formulas that create the foundation of all matter, from atoms to galaxies. Sacred Geometry is the ancient science that explores and explains the energy patterns that create and unify all things, and reveals the precise way that the energy of Creation organises itself. On every scale, every natural pattern of growth or movement conforms inevitably to one or more of these geometric shapes. The strands of our DNA, the cornea of our eye, snow flakes, pine cones, flower petals, diamond crystals, the branching of trees, the path of lightning, a nautilus shell, the star we spin around, the galaxy we spiral within, and all life forms as we know them emerge out of timeless geometric codes. Sacred Geometry may very well provide the answers that you have been looking for. (http://www.maya48.com/)
The patterns I create on the beaches are all inspired by sacred geometry. The idea of 'sacredness' transpires from the realisation that these patterns appear everywhere from the very small, the quantum field or the microcosm, to the very large, the cosmic realms or the macrocosm.
From the orbit of an electron around its nucleus within an atom to that of a galaxy around the central galactic sun, the same patterns can be seen again and again.
The spiral of our own DNA double helix, the positioning of the seeds in a sunflower head, the slow and perfect growth of a Nautilus sea shell, the powerful spiralling winds of a tropical storm and the twisting arms of our Milky Way galaxy are all part of the same movement.
A movement based on harmony and demonstratable using a progressive sequence of numbers called The Fibonacci Sequence.
Just one example of the undeniable interconnectedness of all matter.
An example of how geometrical patterns are to be found within and without the human form.
Our bodies can be seen as the interface between the cosmic and the quantum, a doorway between the worlds of the very small and the very large. To quote the adage: 'As above, so below.'
In creating these beautiful patterns on the beaches I am consciously stepping in to the dance of matter.
By scribing these sacred blue prints into the silica of the shores I briefly still the patterns of movement that defines all of existence.
For these circles, these mandalas point to the eternal truth of impermanence. Every thing appears and disappears in a continual dance of life. A movement between creation and destruction. And me, the human interface, the fulcrum, dancing between the two worlds.
In the inexpressible present surrounded by the infinite loops of past and future I create an existence that can only be grasped until the next tide washes it away and leaves the sand empty and like a tabula rasa, ready to be rewritten upon.
....and all of that jiving around!
