My latest project concerns itself with a multimedia installation that consists of a rotating rhombicuboctahedron that is suspended in a magnetic field. The twelve square faces of the rhombicuboctahedron are carrying an image that represents the mythological aspects of the main celestial bodies that make our planetary system. While the installation makes every two minutes a turn to bring another planet in focus, a melody is played that consists of a classical music tune that is derived from the electromagnetic waves emitted by this particular celestial body mixed with a poem that refers to a specific phase that occurs in every civilization cycle with a reference to the classic European mythology that backs it up. The installation measures about 3 meters over 3 meter.

The concept of this installation is founded upon the idea of how the cyclical nature of a multitude of phenomena mirrors circulatory cosmological and biological patterns.

In this post I want you to bring the prologue. If you want to hear the audio, just click on the image (duration 100 sec).

UPON a time yet uncreate,
Amid a chaos inchoate,
An eternal being sate;
Beneath it, time,
Above it, space.
And the space was time,
And the time was space.
The time then growing strong and warm,
caused space to take a form,
A form chaotic, vast and vague,
Which issued in the cosmic egg.
Then the Being radiated
And the egg incubated,
And thus became the incubator;
And of the egg did emanate,
the Sun who became the instigator;
And the instigator was potentate,
But Eris was potentiator.
