A beginner’s guide to constructing the universe-The mathematical archetypes of nature, art and science, states: “In ancient Greece the advanced students ... who were engaged in deep studies of natural science and self-understanding where called mathematekoi, “those who studied all”. The word mathema signified “learning in general, to be aware, to awaken”.
If there is such a thing as mathematekoi ( a curious one) using clay as a medium...I am one.
I will start in 2012 with making of Gateway 21
The idea: Spider
Web is inspired by the delicate beauty of water droplets caught in the spider
web. It gently moves in response to the wind.
Porcelain pieces are loosely based on this microscopic image of radiolaria (marine plankton), symbolising water drops:
And this is my spider web concept:
made high fired porcelain pieces, reminiscent of microscopic entities,
symbolizing light or water droplets caught in the spider web. Pieces will make
a gentle sound when they touch in the breeze.
Remember when I was making them?
Tomorrow I will take some images of the finished installation
