Patterns of Harmony is a mirrored projection mapping installation inspired by quantum physics and a research to find the origin of geometry. It focuses on all of nature’s weird beauty, takes concepts from far beyond the perceptivity of the human mind and attempts to translate them into a unified, spatial form.
The physical object is a fractal of cubes, though it does not contain any physical cubes, only reflections and projections of it. It is built by applying a combination of rear-projection and two-way mirror foils on acrylic glass, and the final effect is achieved by mapping and projecting animated graphics on the back of the installation. Thereby the light gets “trapped inside” the object, breaks on it’s physical structure and create the illusion of other shapes, eventually letting our minds take care of the construction of the visible geometry.
Whether the resulting complexity of all of nature’s components circulating in a never ending metamorphosis derive from the universe itself, or is a reflection of the human mind interpreting information through the senses, it has another remarkable aspect — as one of the most advanced physical systems, that can still be described by such a simple equation as ‘E=mc2’ — by which we must come to the conclusion that even when our universe looks so complex, at the bottom of all there is nothing else, but beautiful and simple harmony.
