Cosmos - Voyages into the mysteries of the Universal Blueprint
An experimental project exploring scientific and metaphysical ideas
"Isolated material particles are abstractions, their properties being definable and observable only through their interaction with other systems." Niels Bohr
"Quantum theory has shown that particles are not isolated grains of matter, but are probability patterns, interconnections in an inseparable cosmic web..." Frifjof Capra
In my early childhood I discovered a portal to unknown dimensions: the microscope. I became deeply immersed in the observation of the works of life in its infinite varieties of forms, patterns, networks of connections, processes of transformation, possibilities. The lens acted as an artistic catalyst, an intellectual trigger, a meditational tool. This was the genesis of an ongoing quest to capture the sublime spectacle of our Universe, vibrating in rhythmical motion while transforming and recreating itself through eternal cycles. The Universe is a Dancer.

"As is the atom, so is the universe
As is the human body, so is the cosmic body
As is the human mind, so is the cosmic mind
As is the microcosm, so is the macrocosm." The Upanishads
