This contemplative series is based on the ancient Chinese I Ching, also known as the "Book of Changes" in English, an ancient divination text and the oldest of the Chinese classics.

 

There are a total of 72 hexagrams but only 64 are known (the final 8 are multidimensional) which are ancient "bar codes," each one arranged in a unique sequence, assigning it a specific frequency. The resonance received from the hexagram code emanates a "visual software" that results in a metamorphic effect on the viewer.

"In the time of youth, folly is not an evil. One may succeed in spite of it, provided one finds an experienced teacher and has the right attitude toward him. This means, first of all, that the youth himself must be conscious of his lack of experience and must seek out the teacher. Without this modesty and this interest there is no guarantee that he has the necessary receptivity, which should express itself in respectful acceptance of the teacher. This is the reason why the teacher must wait to be sought out instead of offering himself. Only thus can the instruction take place at the right time and in the right way.

 

A teacher's answer to the question of a pupil ought to be clear and definite like that expected from an oracle; thereupon it ought to be accepted as a key for resolution of doubts and a basis for decision. If mistrustful or unintelligent questioning is kept up, it serves only to annoy the teacher. He does well to ignore it in silence, just as the oracle gives one answer only and refuses to be tempted by questions implying doubt. Given addition a perseverance that never slackens until the points are mastered one by one, real success is sure to follow. Thus the hexagram counsels the teacher as well as the pupil."

Aluminum Sublimation
Sublimation onto metal is a new, cutting edge, way to reproduce an image, but has been used in the textile industry for decades. Sublimation itself is the process of going from a solid to a gas, back to a solid - skipping the liquid state.The image is first printed onto a transfer paper and then is adhered to pretreated aluminum (other substrates such as tile, wood, or glass are also available).The aluminum and transfer paper are placed into a custom heat press, which is heated to temperatures exceeding 380 degrees Fahrenheit. While being subjected to extreme heat and pressure, the dyes from the transfer paper turn into a gas, are pressed into the surface of the metal, and then solidify into the treated aluminum. As the dyes cool they are permanently infused beneath the surface of the metal substrate.
