'Nortigo' series, Integral Lens project
‘Nortigo’ is an exercise in shifting points of view as a gesture to reveal new and interesting information, compositions and feelings from spaces designed to form tangible connections between above and below, by looking straight up towards the ceiling, atrium or sky. The progression from indoor to outdoor spaces supplements the introvert/extrovert design polarity, while the pairing of classical buildings with modern, postmodern and cosmogenic architecture allows for comparative viewing experiences and a diverse showcase of the built environment.
The title ‘Nortigo’ is a combination of the words ‘North’ and ‘Vertigo’. Vertigo is a negative feeling associated with the loss of balance and light-headedness when looking down from a great height, whereas the expression “true north” is a positive feeling associated with finding the right direction and correct course both literally and figuratively.
Wisdom recognises that beyond the multiplicity of forms lies the absolute void that transcends all forms. Compassion recognises that in the manifest world the one can only be expressed through many forms and thus all must be treated with love, care and respect. The ascent from the many to the one is the path of wisdom and the descent from the one to the many is the path of compassion. ”
