The Evolution Spiral project is part and practice for a future paradigm of creativity- a future that begins by inviting unusual ideas into open ears. The project is inspired by Foster + Partner’s Reichstag Dome and begins by reflecting upon its structure, an architecture of unparalleled elegance, in metaphor. The dome, like a giant ear poised to discern world wide information, was designed to symbolize a democratic process (where everyone is heard).
The growth of humankind’s ability to access information instantaneously brings us to a stage of development where an understanding of complex systems far outweighs rote knowledge. Inclusive clusters of team concept development are occurring in most fields. This process is best actualized by the world’s most innovative architects; architectural design and engineering teams are building ecologically sustainable structures embraced with streamlined designs created with scientific use of materials, space and environment.
This Evolution Spiral Art/Science project, informed by architecture, mimics the architects’ co-creating strategies. The project’s “Team of Science” is a professional think tank of scientific and scholarly investigation. These intellectuals lend their expertise to the project's artworks, as each contributes her/his subject specialty for contemplation and cross reference. As we approach the physical structure of the Reichstag Dome as metaphor for evolution, we experiment in concert to develop a co-creative prototype for communication via fine art. It is of no small consequence that our DNA spirals into a double helix. We have no choice but to evolve.
