Stoicheia is an homage to Earth’s earliest thinkers, particularly Plato and Euclid, merging modern technology with the very foundations of mathematics, and dedicating it to the culture from which modern academia was born. A perfect dodecahedron, each side depicting the iconography of one of the Twelve Olympians, centered in a stained-glass rosary design, this four-foot hanging lantern will be lit from inside with 2,000+ morphing LEDs. Just as mathematics are universal and unchanging, the geometric designs on each face will remain the same, and much like the higher vibrations of life, the LEDs under the surface will be constantly changing and flowing, making each moment under Stoicheia totally unique. Digital stained-glass, Stoicheia combines classic antiquity with the state-of-the-art technology through the common thread of geometry. In the reflections of each of the deities, we find reflections of ourselves.
Lilli Szafranski and Jesse Banks are Makers, in the truest sense. Each found their place in this world embracing the ever-evolving world of technology and engineering. Both are digital artists, expressing themselves through their respective forms; software and electronics. Using math, science, engineering, and an eye for aesthetics they create stories with physical form.
