DESCRIPTION

As humans our lives are inextricably linked with the sea; as an essential part of our ecosystem and an invaluable resource, we can cull knowledge and inspiration from its depths. We are inspired by the illustrations and writings of Ernst Haeckel and have begun exploration of Radiolaria, protozoa whose fossils make up a large part of our ocean floors. Radiolarians, which have existed for millions of years, are often perfect geometric forms whose symmetry evoke sacred geometry, complex chemical latticework, and mathematical patterns that can be found throughout the natural world.
