Creative: Dancing the 5th Dimension

Dancing the 5th Dimension is a techno-surrealist work combining traditional drawing with computer generated figures. The background hints at objects of the 3D material world—molecules, pyramids, a page (knowledge), a musical horn and organic life forms. The figures are androids dancing through a higher dimension such as the Occultists’ Akashic Record. The 3D world we perceive is not the only reality! In the words (paraphrased) of T. S . Eliot:

At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;

Neither from nor towards; at the still point,

… there the dance is, and there is only the dance.
