Exploring the fractal nature of sacred geometry.
This work is exploring the trinity and the nature of 3 a very significant number in a lot of religious practice.
I was starting to see the above shape appearing in a lot of geometry that I was looking at in research. It is like an equilateral triangle but it has the edges bent in. I thought this might just be people getting creative but it turns out that the shape is made by putting three triangles on the points of an triangle. I have seen this shape used a lot in the star of David.
Really like this geometry. There are other versions of the valknut but they don’t interlink in the same way that this one does. This way of interlocking the triangles is so much more harmonic.
Was looking up simple geometry for the equilateral triangle and came across it enclosed in circles. This has got to be a personal favourite of mine, so much balance in one simple design.
I can actually see how I could build a lot of shapes from this one design. The way the angles intersect and the negative space in this geometry could be used as a positive shape to create something totally new.
This design also encapsulates one of the principals of sacred geometry that I really love as a designer. That is that you must balance you straight edges to curved and also positive and negative shapes

Getting more into the art side of things with this one. I am using the same geometry from my other works but exploring variations on the original form by placing it in different ways. It becomes clear how fractal a lot of sacred geometry is when you are exploring repetition in the work each angle seems to lock together and shapes tend to reduce easily.
I have had the idea of using green for a long time now, I want to try to put all my geometry into natural environments and explore how it can sit and still look like it is apart of the space.
Again I love the simplicity of this work against the pure blue sky and the complexity of the grass. In researching the equilateral triangle i was really interested in the construction technique using a compass and a straight edge. I will certainly use this technique to construct an animated sacred geometry work in the future.
