Casa editrice: BE MER Paper Kunsthalle 2015
Data di pubblicazione: 2015
Design : Studio Luc Derycke 29 x 29 cm/440 pp/HardCover English version. ISBN 9789491775833. Presented from May until November 2015 at the Palazzo Fortuny in Venice by the Axel & May Vervoordt Foundation and Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia, the exhibition Proportio examines the ways we experience proportion in our lives and the complex universe in which we live. By presenting wide-ranging and diverse expressions found in art, nature, physics, economics, history, science, music, medicine and many other subjects, the study of proportion uncovers the natural patterns that are used to create everything in the material world. Throughout the course of known human history, the knowledge of proportions has been applied across civilizations for thousands of years. The sophisticated knowledge of sacred geometry, and the golden ratio in particular, was considered highly advanced and closely linked to secretive spiritual wisdom and religious traditions. In the West, the knowledge of sacred geometry was so secret that it was intentionally guarded for hundreds of years and may have been purposefully forgotten or discarded. What was known? How as this knowledge used? How can it help us to understand the world around us today? More than an exhibition catalog, this book and the concept of Proportio aims to restart a contemporary dialogue surrounding the lost knowledge of proportions and sacred geometry. The work of artists, scientists, architects, philosophers and others provides a lens to help us see what proportion can teach us about the essential design of the life in the present and how we may use this knowledge to create a blueprint for the future. Proportio is an invitation to explore universal proportions and reflect upon the interconnected design of our universe. 0 g. Codice inventario libreria 46895
