#008 Bent Star Tretrahedron
This piece is one of a set of three,
the eighth of a series of Intentional Technology Experiments guided
by sacred geometry tradition, exploring the power of intention,
and inspired by Masaru Emoto's work with water crystals. The intention
within this piece is Gratitude, Love, and Global Awakening. Emoto's
work has shown that Gratitude and Love are powerful transformative
intentions. Awakening to our inherent interconnection is essential
to the survival of our species.
The basic shape is a star tetrahedron, a pair of tetrahedrons
with a common focal point. One tetrahedron uses red wire and light
gels and the other uses blue, representing the balance between
the masculine and the feminine. The base and the struts connecting
the nodes are steam bent. Each pair of crystals at the eight nodes
has been charged with the intention of Gratitude, Love, and Awakening.
Five LEDs in each node shine through a graphic of the Flower of
Life at the base of each crystal, transferring the intention to
the focal point of the structure.
The Flower of Life is an ancient symbol, found in cultures all
over the world. Among other meanings, it has within the pattern
a two dimensional image of all five of the three dimensional Platonic
Solids of matter, thus representing the dimensional shift in perspective
that is the core of the spiritual Awakening now in process within
The current for the LEDs runs through the coils on the nodes.
The current orientation, and the direction of the windings in
each node, creates a magnetic field oriented along the axis of
the crystals, pointing toward the center of the structure. The
platform in the middle allows an object to be held at the focal
point of the structure. The other panels further focus the energy
into the center of the piece. The graphic on the panels is the
Flower Of Life, over a copper foil reflector.
The crystals are Brazilian Quartz. The wood is Madrone and Birds
Eye maple veneer. The coils are enamel coated copper wire. The
LEDs run on 5 volts DC from a wall transformer, and consume about
4 watts of power.
I offer this piece as an experiment, in response to my yearning
to help amplify Gratitude, Love, and Awakening in all beings.
At the least, my goal is to create an esthetically interesting
