Last week on BURNcast I caught a ride in Jeff's blue-fish taxi to the Zome Mani Padme Zome, an art installation at Burning Man 2009 by Rob Bell, Patricia Algara and Zachary Rutz. In this video we talk to to Rob about how he designed this piece.
Evolving to Bootiesattva
The spiral is the most ancient symbol found on every civilized continent. The spiral of nature, art, mathematics - a constant form at all scales revolving around itself, ever evolving upward towards syntropy, synergy, life, consciousness and enlightenment. The duality of the spiral embodies the cyclical nature of birth and rebirth and the escape there from.
On the Playa, enter the Zome Mani Padme Zome and begin the evolutionary journey; the cycle or birth and rebirth thru a spiral labyrinth of luminarias ever evolving inwards, ever evolving upwards, sometimes setback but ultimately finding the sacred lotus zome at the center - the Bootiesattva. A sacred space where experiences happen.
