“BLUE MORPH”: Sacred Marriage of Heaven & Earth
May 28, 2000. Victoria Vesna & Jim Gimzewski’s collaborative and interactive Blue Morph installed by the married couple Paul Geluso & Aliki Portiris in the historic St. Cornelius chapel on Governor’s Island for curator Carol Parkinson’s Wave(forms): Electronic Art Exhibition.
Bathed in a blue light, an immersion in both sky and sea, I was the first to interact with this amazing work, which manages to be both site specificand globally uniform as a self-contained icon.
Blue Morph breaks down the boundaries between art /science and spirit/matter even as
it connects heaven and earth through the sacred geometry of holistic 21st century icon.
I met Victoria Vesna in Berlin on May 12, 2011 and promised her I would usher in the project launch in New York City while she made a near simultaneous launch of Blue Morph on 23 May at St. John’s Church in Gdansk, Poland.
Vesna was a plenary speaker at the Sixth annual The Arts in Society international conference held at the Berlin Branderburg Academy of Arts and Humanities and devoted this year to the integration of arts and science, in conjunction with the historical institution’s 2011-2012 Topic of the Year, “Arte Facts: Knowledge is Art, Art is Knowledge.”
At the Berlin conference, I delivered a followup to my 2009 AICA paper in Dublin, chronicling my 28 year journey to erect a new art theory in conjunction with a grassroots movement in art devoted to the hieros gamos, summed up by these images.
My interaction with such an integration of form and content culminates my 12 year journey in the New York arts scene locating and interpreting a new aesthetic in interactive, collaborative art integrating heaven & earth…
…in reflection of our ever-present origin in the ancient icon of the hieros gamos.
My 11 year journey to experience this self-contained work of transformation began with a ritual on May 5, 2000 recounted in my memoir, Kundalini’s Daughter: Critical Trilogy, Vol. I
The timing of this immersion was uncanny. The eve of the Seventh Gate that shamanic Venus passes through as Lucifer, the Morning Star in the sign of Scorpio, the near culmination of a nine month journey from helical rise on November 3, 2011, when She is at her most brilliant…
This Memorial Day triple conjunction triggered by the Moon brings to an end the May “show me the money” period, as described by astrologer Gloria Star. She termed it a “marathon,” writing in her monthly forecast: “with more than patience required to continue all thew way to the finish line. The power is there, but you must direct it clearly and purposefully if you are to prevail.”
Prevailing at this time means triumph when Jupiter enters Taurus at 9:57AM on June 4.
I certainly felt I had reached the finish line when I experienced the transformation of Blue Morph It has been a long and exhausting 11 years…
…to find the interactive global work of art that incorporates the cycle of transformation into a visual aesthetic of the sacred marriage of heaven and earth!
The authentic irony at work in this crucial timing of manifestation is that I had to go to Germany, the land of my ancestors (my name in German means battlefield) in order to locate this alchemical breakthrough so close to home!
