1000 Paths @ Museum of Biblical Art

Documentation and excerpts of 1000 Paths (To The Divine), commissioned for the show ‘Back To Eden: Contemporary Artists Wander the Garden’ at the Museum of Biblical Art, NYC. (2014)

1000 Paths is an animated video projection depicting an abstract cycle of cosmogenesis -- from void, to chaos, to creation, to dissolution -- central to which is the motif of an efflorescing 'Tree of Life'. Inspired by the iconology of traditional Christian and Gnostic sacred art, as well as early modernist occult/spiritualist abstract art, 1000 Paths is “the universe of space and time … a psychedelic light show that spectacularly evokes the Creation.” (Ken Johnson, New York Times).

Permanent collection, Museum of the Bible, Washington DC.
