Last fall I took a class on Sacred Geometry. Our final assignment was to measure our head, hand and feet, then determine what sacred geometrical format it was closest related to. From there, we pick one of those formats and created a piece of artwork that reflects ourselves personally.
I decided to go with my right hand in relaxed state which measured into a root 2 rectangle. Not only using the root 2 rectangle as the format for this illustration, but I also used it as the story behind it. The basic anatomy of a root 2 rectangle is as follows: 2 identical triangles form a square, the diagonal of that square forms the length of that rectangle. From that anatomy, I made a love story. 2 people come together and form a stable whole but the dynamic of the 2 is what helps them prosper into something beautiful. With all that groundwork done, all I needed was a memory that suited it. Since this was my last semester before graduating, I had the perfect memory for this last illustration as a student.
This is a memory during my very first semester in art school. This is also a memory of when my girlfriend and I were first dating. Back when we were freshmen in art school we got out of class around the same time and started hanging out quite a bit. One place we went to a lot was the Westfield Dome in San Francisco. Before they had the giant cafe, the dome was an empty quiet space filled with lounge chairs, perfect place to relax after a 6 hour class. Her an I would usually go there, have a late lunch, relax. We mostly about our dreams and aspirations of being a great artist. It was then we got closer and after 4 years, were still together and we are still helping each other becoming better artists.
Her and I are place on the ground of reality. The architecture itself forms the story. The 2 triangles are represented as the the 2 sets of 3 pillars. Together they form a secret square shape that reaches out into the sky. The Dome above represents the prosperity of the two. Within the dome, the major sections going toward the center are divided by golden section relations.
