Designing for Perception

Good design is invisible. Through semantics a designed object constructs meaning or encodes a message to evoke specific emotions, associations, or ideas. The object of design becomes a symbol.


Symmetry is doing something that looks like doing nothing. Antisymmetry (or Dichromatic, black-and-white, magnetic, counterchange, spatial inversion symmetry), is a symmetry operation which reverses an object to its opposite and refers to the condition where right-sided and left-sided—or dextral and sinistral—forms are equally common within an object. In Geometrical applications the Spatial inversion, 1?, is an antisymmetry with respect to rotations and position in space.

The standard definition of antisymmetry is "R(x,y) and R(y,x) implies x=y".

Geometric Bodies

In awareness of the unique essence of a place, of nature, of an urban or landscape space as a living counterpart, a connection between subject and object, between the inner and outer world emerge, and thus a connection between physical sensation and spatial experience.

Geometric bodies are conceptual spaces whose formation represent a specific frequency which transmits context. What we perceive creates a holistic understanding of our reality, through which we can learn something about ourselves.

Beyond Illusion and Doubt

We live in a sensory world of transitory nature. Things existing in the physical reality are never permanent, and we get to experience them as pairs of opposites like cold and heat, pain and pleasure, soft and harsh, self and other, birth and death etc. Perhaps the major obstacle for the human race has been to cling to material objects and transitory situations with the illusion that they will last forever. However, with the passing of time, we come to the realization that those things we were holding onto so tightly, were not ours to keep.

Archetypal shapes, also known as pure or extreme shapes, are fundamental and universal forms, that have deep symbolic meanings rooted in the human psyche and collective unconscious associated with archetypal themes such as transformation and transcendence. Through design and architecture powerful and memorable objects can be created that evoke deep emotional responses in viewers, thus tapping into the universal language of the human psyche to resonate with people across cultures and time.

Symbols of consciousness

What is the vision of formlessness? It is when, instead of an imagined material form, you experience its essential element. It is that which has not assumed a material form as yet, nevertheless it exists. Symbols of the formless transcendental reality are Archetypes which are trans-sensorial and transcendental.

How can you imagine that which is nothing?
How will you contemplate that which you have never seen?
What is the formless representation of water? H2 and O; two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. When the two unite, they become water whose form you can see. In this case the formula is the formless representation. In the same way, a geometric symbol is a symbolic representation of the eternal principle.

Spiritual Technology are tools for transformation refer to practices, techniques that are used to facilitate personal growth, transformation, and awareness. It combines principles and insights to create new ways of exploring, understanding, and experiencing the realm of enhanced consciousness. It means an instrument, a medium by which one can access the deeper layers of consciousness.

Code & Structure

Yantras are geometrical patterns, geometrical symbols that can be experienced as a 2D and a 3D object which represent the movement of energy within consciousness. Several different geometric figures are used in the creation of yantras. Yantras are geometric configurations, mainly constructed of triangles and circles within a framework of squares. The basic geometric figure in the yantra is the line. The world within is held together by vibrational geometric structures, where the basic figure is the line. From the yogic and tantric perspective, a line is the only way of expressing the unknown. It is the symbol of space. From the line emerge triangles. There are two kind of triangle in yantras: inverted and upright. The inverted triangle represents energy and the upright triangle represents consciousness. In the inverted triangle, the horizontal line above represents space, the left line moving downward represents time and the right line moving downward represents object. Space, time and object: that which is recognized by the individual and lived in by the individual. Space on top, time moving down and sense object awareness moving down.


The choice of material used, snow, wood and other natural materials, shows not only the temporariness of existence but also the inevitable fleeting of time as the material transforms back into nature, which after all are both its own esthetic essence.


The 'intention' of my artwork is irrelevant, since i do not have control whatsoever over how my artwork is 'used'. I do not own the meaning of my work, thus it is what it is.
