The Routes of Civilization

 

 

 

The origins of this long ongoing evolutionary project began with the creation of stained glass windows represented by zoological diagrams of the first known forms of life on earth, which are found at the bottom of the ocean. One of them seen above, reminded me somewhat of a subway map. Hence, I called it, "A Proposal Diagram for a Los Angeles Subway System," over one decade before the first lines of one existed in the city. The project title I chose, "Routes of Civilization," is a play on the word, "root," which is pronounced the same, as if undergrounds are to an urban center what "roots" are to a plant or a tree.

From an ancient craft to high technology, I pursued this idea, as the technological possibilities to create artworks began to dramatically evolve during my early adulthood. I became fascinated by observing the fine line between human interpretations of nature, both aesthetically and functionally, and how that relationship interacts with our lives, even in the creation of a metro map. Thus, beginning with the accurate mapping of simple line drawings of ten subway maps from around the world on an architectural computer system (CAD), I have continued to explore the relationship between function and aesthetic, which is central to the very purpose I recognize of being an artist.

In this particular gallery the comparative iconic symbols of nine global urban centers interact with each other in various exploratory ways.

It should be noted that the artworks in this gallery are among the most naturally suited for printing on functional objects, as well as wall art.
