Universal Harmony Canon
Digital Art - Digital
According to Plato's ideas, expressed in Timaeus, God created the universe on the principal of order and right measure. The whole universe derives from a mutual composite of all things and is supported by a divine principle opposed to the primal chaos.
In this work, the basic, regular geometric shapes that are inscribed inside one another, are symbolizing the reciprocity among all things, that defines the laws of the universe.
The microcosmos (the immediate world where we live) and the macrocosmos (the universe) are connected through a mathematical canon that regulates also its aesthetics. Everything, from the movement of planets to the proportions of the human body, belongs to a mathematical order that presupposes numbers and measure.
The sculpture 'Doryphoros' (curved by Polykleitos, 4th century BC), will be later be named the 'Canon' because it shows the harmonious proportions between the sum of the human body and its individual parts.
