Our World – A Web of Interconnection, is a body of work in progress which explores the union of science and spirituality, rendering visible our world as a dynamic web of interconnection.
The past few weeks I’ve been working hard to put this project on Kickstarter. It’s been a fun and sometimes exhausting journey getting everything ready – the video, the description, the rewards, the promotional materials.
The kickstarter idea is not about donations. It’s a commerce and patronage platform which allows people to support projects they believe in for as little as $1 on up. On my project page you’ll see the different levels of support and the rewards attached to each level.
Through an embedding of sacred geometry patterns within visual elements of the plant kingdom: root, stem, branch, leaf, flower, tree, fruit, seed – and visual elements of the animal kingdom: human, horse, bird, deer, fish, dog – My project expresses this intersection of spiritual and scientific thought.
I’m really excited about this project. It started when I discovered, Creative Capital, who offers grants to individual artists. Though the competition is fierce (1500 applicants, 23 recipients) I decided to go for it. Through that process I really focused on what my work is about and how to take it to the next level. Then once I got that off, I decided to explore the kickstarter concept as a way to get the first part of this project done. (I’ll find out in June if I make it to the next round for the Creative Capital grant).
I hope you’ll visit my project page and consider supporting this project.
