Ludlow, Dennis & Sereno, Prartho – Staircase to the Microcosm
STAIRCASE to the sea of the MICROCOSM,
Representation of the GOLDEN MEAN
By: Dennis Ludlow & Prartho Sereno
Since I was a kid, fairy tales that described finding a hidden staircase underground fascinated me, still does. I wanted this box to spark that mystery when opened. The staircase is constructed of blocks that correspond to the GOLDEN MEAN, a ratio of 0.618. The mirror was my way to illustrate that the staircase not only descends infinitely in the direction of the Microcosm but simultaneously in the direction of the Macrocosm. (As Above … so Below)
Prartho’s painting of the depths of the sea is an illustration, a tribute to where life first arrived on the planet.
