Notes on the Infinite

September 17, 2015 — Leave a comment

The orbits of the Earth and Venus are approximately 8:13, which are two consecutive Fibonacci Numbers and their ratio is approximately the Golden Ratio which along with Fractal Geometry is the foundation of all design in Nature.

When one diagrams the orbits of the two planets you get this image. A very old and ancient image. There are no accidents at this cosmic scale. Only signposts for all of us, pointing to the Infinite.

Notes on the Infinite

Head on over to the bleuscape.com.au/blog and have a look at another masterpiece in the making. I think smaller is better when it comes to Gehry’s Vision.

Which is why I like this first phase construction shot even more than what the finished building will look like….

Russian born but now American sculptor and stage designer George Tyspin is one of the most ironic things about Sochi Winter Olympics and really shows what happened to all the arts in Russia over the years. Yes, an American artist will be responsible for the biggest Russian spectacle since the Revolution. Why? Ask yourself what or who comes to mind when you think about Russian artists of the current century?

“I’ve done big shows, but this is something else,” Tsypin told Vieira on TODAY Friday. “It’s truly mind-boggling. Of course the ambition comes from the Russian’s to create the biggest show ever because they say, ‘We are a big country, we have to do it.’’
