This contemplatative 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 (only 64 are known) which are ancient "bar codes," each one arranged in a unique sequence, assigning it a multidimensional frequency. When viewed by the observer, the resonance received from the code of forms in each piece emanates a "visual software" that has a metamorphic effect on the viewer.

"The lower trigram, Sun, represents wood, and the upper, K'un, means the earth. Linked with this is the idea that wood in the earth grows upward. In contrast to the meaning of Chin... this pushing upward is associated with effort, just as a plant needs energy for pushing upward through the earth. That is why this hexagram, although it is connected with success, is associated with effort of the will.

 

The pushing upward of the good elements encounters no obstruction and is therefore accompanied by great success. The pushing upward is made possible not by violence but by modesty and adaptability. Since the individual is borne along by the propitiousness of the time, he advances. He must go to see authoritative people. He need not be afraid to do this, because success is assured. But he must set to work, for activity (this is the meaning of 'the south') brings good fortune."
