Wisdom Of The Spheres

There is no chance and anarchy in the universe. All is system and gradation. Every god is there sitting in his sphere.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Sphere 754

 

Sphere 782

From atoms to galaxies the sphere is a prominent form because it requires the least amount of energy to form and has the least possible area for the volume it encloses. That makes it the most economical, energy-efficient way of enclosing and separating two volumes of space. In this instance, pools of oil lying on the surface of water in glass containers.

I wanted to create images that would contain sacred geometries and fine gradations. As in all my work, I was looking for subject matter and qualities of light that encourage contemplation and ideally lead to numinous experience. The spheres accomplished that for me by evoking the sensibilities of the micro level of living systems and the macro level of the cosmos.

A  description of the making of these images—and many more—can be found in my Blurb book entitled “Wisdom Of The Spheres.

  1. Being a “tecky” and having worked several years on implementing a production system for looong straight gray scales, they are both technical & magical. Having two of your spheres pictures on my wall, I see them differently each time I look.

    Thanks
