Squaring the Circle 4 by ou8nrtist2 Squaring the Circle 4 by ou8nrtist2
Pocket Attenuator

Here's another version of "Squaring the Circle" ,again in three dimensions,in a size that's portable.
Welded,cold formed, stainless steel.
These two complimentary Sacred Geometry shapes(CUBE and SPHERE) with (nearly) identical volumes,when intersected, cause a subtle but palpable energy resonation.
Sort of like a reset button.
I know the words I've used to describe this effect are sort of vague and New Age. I'm sorry but I have No Idea what's going on on the "scientific" level. But this does not mean it isn't a perceptible phenomena...or that I don't know what I'm feeling...
I found this effect quite by accident,following my intuition and curiosity as I study Sacred Geometry (by making models and exploring shapes).
But I am convinced that the ancients who devised the exercises and other common problems for Geometers,(and the model making),did so with a clear understanding that the knowledge could be passed without mitigation by the intellect. They were/are problems to ponder under ones own tutelage and self study and could be accomplished in isolation. Spatial understanding is not dependent on language,so the perception of relationships of shape and structure can progress without the usual feedback of discussion.
I believe science is on the verge of understanding that there is a relationship between SHAPE (holding space),and the energy field it can create,a further connection will be made by adding particular and specific sound congruences to the equation. there may be a time in the not-too-distant-future when certain sounds may be utilized to reorganize matter(sic). Creation and or destruction (of physical matter)may be accomplished by the manipulation of energy through shape configurations coupled with sound.
My intuition tells me this conceptual knowledge was known in the remote past and that we are on the verge of relearning it...

Similar thought to the reason crystals and crystalline structures have healing or emotional effects, a nifty track of learning to follow. I really find that shape beautiful, it catches my eye and holds it... But then again, I'm known for my attraction to shiny objects! ;P

It is a lovely object with an interesting idea behind it, there are few things to match that kind of combo spiffiness.

She's on the watch list of my other account, and I have her Etsy shop in my favorites. :D I love her work. I'm actually working on some earrings inspired by her stuff right now. I'll try to get pics posted soon.

Could I ask you for the favor of picking a couple pieces from my gallery and giving a bit of critique? If you don't have time, I understand, but I would appreciate the input.

I'm happy to,
But please remember that you have asked me to do this.
To truly respect your request requires me TO TELL THE TRUTH as I see it. Otherwise it does no one any good.
So what I request from you in return is to use only the information and feedback THAT SERVES YOU,and disregard the rest...

I would chose the piece I like the most and also the piece/pieces I think need more attention the most.Sort of the good and the bad.
The Spirit Knife shows the most creativity and originality. This is the kind of piece that people will remember you for. Most of the other pieces can be seen somewhere else,not the Spirit Knife. It is unique. I know very well the constraints of sales,trying to make a living etc.
I'm just saying THAT'S the piece that has life force and vitality...

The torcs to me a not quite done yet. Originally the Celts wore them with the terminations in front. They did this so everyone might see the ornamentation on the finials. Usually it was the finials themselves which made someone remember a particular torc. I would suggest to you two that you come up with a unique and beautiful ornament for those terminals. something that is uniquely yours and has not been seen before...

Wow, I followed the links, and some of your work is SO much like my favorite sculpture - I built a miniature when I was in my early teens and always wanted to do it again on a much larger scale. Your stuff makes me miss that piece!
"Squaring the Circle 4" brought it to mind, but "FA 19 - Octahedron", and "FA 20 - Platonic Solids" almost look as though they could have inspired my piece or vice/versa. "Squaring the Circle 4" gives me the kind of impact (visually) that I was working toward when I designed my piece, which I don't recall ever naming.
Needless to say, I LOVE your work. Makes me wish I had devoted more time to three dimensional work.
Kudos

I have been tapped by some local arts organizations that foster the arts in secondary schools to give an occasional presentation to help kids understand what REAL jobs are out there in the field of Art...Each time I do this,I'm struck with what gets through to them. It is the archetypal artist existence that inspires them the most,that I have created my own job,living and avocation (as inconsistent and unpredictable as that is),this is my greater offering. I am severely honest in my appraisal of this particular lifestyle and the many sacrifices it entails. I think they need to be told the truth ,especially about such a difficult and comprehensive undertaking(trying to make a life for oneself as an independent artist)...

It's great that you get out there and share that with them!
I've always felt that so many more kids would benefit from having art in their lives in a bigger way. All the struggles we have to deal as we grow up! The ability to express ourselves through a painting or sculpture, or any other medium, to let out the anguish, anger, and frustration, to share the joy and pain - can save lives, and turn someone that could have been society's burden into an encouragement!

right you are,
It's the true sign of a high creative personality.
When I was ,something like 10 years old my mom took me to a shrink for a "personality inventory".
One of the questions on the "test" was think of as many alternate uses you can for a brick...
45 minutes later I was still writing .I had something like 30 alternate uses...LOL
The shrink and m mom were both nonplussed...but my dad was overjoyed.

It is EXACTLY as you describe,
My friend Peter asked me for it immediately...LOL
But I told him I needed to hang with it for a few days.
He owns this one:I removed the hook,so it's a hand held device now.

He keeps his hand on it when he sleeps. No lie. He says it acts like an attenuator of sorts.

Oh, a little one!
Sacred shapes certainly do feel good. In a way,this may explain why I love my dapping die so much. And why my son, who is experiencing artists block, should go play with his pyramids instead of tapping me on the head with his fingertips.

And just think,
if he had a set of the five Platonic solids in their various manifestations ,he'd be so much ahead of the game spatially by the time he reached maturity...I bet they have em in the Steiner Schools...
