CuBe is a project where I am investigating a connection to sacred geometry, Sanskrit chakras and my own rituals. In three-dimensional space, the cube is the first Platonic solid, constructed with congruent regular polygonal faces. They are known as Platonic solids because the philosopher Plato linked them to the spirit world of heaven and the physical elements on Earth.
In sacred geometry, Archangel Metatron, the angel of life oversees the flow of energy in a mystical cube known as Metatron's Cube, which contains all of the geometric shapes in God's creation and represents the patterns that make up everything God has made.
The Cube is the symbol of the first Sanskrit Chakra, the Base/Root and represented by the element Earth. The Sanskrit name is 'Muladhara, the seed syllable is 'LAM' and the vowel sound is "Oo". Earth energy is associated with Winter.
CuBe was constructed at the Arches Studios, Southampton, conceived during a November full-moon. Arches Studios is the portal where CuBe will access space for a series of radical, transformative, animist becomings. The non-conscious will become conscious when CuBe connects to the human soul and wild mind.
"CuBe will undergo a ritual transformation due to take place on a specific sacred-site in Hampshire harnessing the energy of a full-moon. The next full-moon will occur on Saturday 22 December 2018".
