Natural Geometries

During a 2015 trip to Spain, evidence of Medieval Muslim leaders’ religious tolerance inspired me, since it had allowed Muslim, Christian and Jewish populations to work together to make great cultural advances. In response, within the context of this current period of social divisiveness, my project Natural Geometries celebrates contributions from diverse peoples. I combine geometric and natural forms and patterns with Islamic, Christian and Jewish architectural elements and letterforms to convey the universal attempt to make sense of the world and reveal connections between culture, language, identity and the environment.
