No::: 32 Sketchbook - Monad - December 20 2013 - The Ralire Study

No::: 32 Sketchbook  - Monad - December 20 2013 - The Ralire Study 







 -The further I looked into the implications of the number Three in relation the the
 soapbubbles, roadside cracks and in fact most occuring cracks under tension the more 
I became aware that there is an underlying principle thatgoverns these processes . 

-To me there is a sense of a universal " Rule" as it were, that although these patterns 
I am drawn too appear at first glance to be entirely random, 
there is in fact a kind of relationship going on that both contains a random and a structure 
nature at the same time . 


-At this point I do not have the necessary knowledge to explain exactly why but it is 
intriguing enough to send me on 
the next Breathstay 4 : To investigate the meaning of Numbers per se

- because I feel I cannot really engage in THREE without really first starting at the
 beginning with ONE 

- To that extend I will use the book by Michael Schneider called 
" A Beginners Guide to Constructing the Universe" 
as an outline to begin my exploration into numbers ...starting with ONE - the MONAD




" Quotes for the Day" 

" One cannot conceive the many without the one ... THe Study of the unit is
 among those that lead the mind on and turn it to the vision of reality " PLATO

" The circle is a reflection of the world, and our own - deep perfection, unity ,
design excellence, wholeness and divine nature "  Michael Schneider

the whole or oneness please do share in a comment below :-)






-when first discovering a line there comes a second point in which the discovery 
arises that the 2 ends of the line 
can meet and form a loop , and in it's perfect geometric shape a circle

-The Numner 1 is represented by the geomentric shape of the circle 
- the greek word for the principles represented by the circle is " MONAD" 

Wholeness
Unity
Stability
Oneness
Seed
Essence


- First to actually simply draw a circle .... well not as simple as it sounds . 
To draw a circle freehand is difficult , and I did not achieve it . 

Is it possible for a human to draw a perfect circle without the aid of any tools or implements .

- Playing some more with getting to know the circle using cloth and batik wax to randomly place circular shapes . I used a cup to load the wax onto and was intrigued to discover that even here the " perfect" circle was not as easily formed , the tension of the flow pull of the loose fabric combined with the quick hardening of the wax in my cold studio resulted in rather loopy circles that expanded out of their edges

- EXPANSION ... the point extending itself out of the center
