ARTIST’S STATEMENT
The work investigates the relationship of art, science and mythology through the mystery of the microcosm and the macrocosm.

We do not ask for what purpose the birds do sing,
for their song is pleasure since they were created for singing.
Similarly, we ought not to ask why the human mind
troubles to fathom the secrets of the heavens.
The diversity of the phenomena of Nature is so great,
and the treasures hidden in the heavens so rich,
precisely in order that the human mind
shall never be lacking in fresh nourishment
Johannes Kepler

A blinding spark flashed
within the concealed of the concealed,
from the mystery of the Infinite,
a cluster of vapor in formlessness…
Under the impact of breaking through,
one high and hidden point shone.
Beyond that point nothing is known.
So it is called the Beginning.
Zohar
