My Vision of Peace
This is one thematic piece of a project I have developed for over three decades that I call The Underground Cathedral, which is a statement concerning the universal collective spirit of humanity. The image consists
of distorted images of nine accurately plotted underground transportation maps from around the world: Paris, Barcelona, London, Munich, Stockholm, Moscow, Tokyo, Mexico City and Washington D.C. I began this project by transforming the diagrams of the first known forms of life on earth, found at the bottom of the sea into architectural stained glass artworks. In so doing I have uncovered a universality of life forms, of their transformations into massive manmade urban systems and their mappings which represent a universal language and means of cross cultural understanding that also transcends all levels of education.


Medium
The main medium is light. Originally plotted in 1989 with the first known architectural (CAD) computer system, last year I transformed this work further by subjecting it to a series of manipulations utilizing the latest computer graphics effects. I have exhibited these images as plotted ink drawings and illuminated translucent reproductions with light boxes, projected the images large scale onto walls for installations and animated them for video films I have made.
