After the process of trying to create a new language/alphabet i wasnt sure if it was where i wanted to go - but it was during this time that i had another view on things.
Ive always been interested in the number 5, the 5 times table has always been my favorite, things just seem easier with the number 5 - i have no idea why. During the time i spent looking into hieroglyphs, i also read up on the creation of the pyramids and the golden ratio. The number 5 is the basis of the golden ratio (1+√ 5/2)this magic ratio of 1:1.618 which was the basis for the design of the pyramids, obelisks and even rumored to be the basis of the Washington Monument. Artists and Architects since the Renaissance have been using this ratio for the basis of paintings and buildings believing it to be aesthetically more pleasing - the most famous being Da Vinci's Last Supper.
The golden ratio and the √ 5 got me thinking - is this magical ratio aesthetically more pleasing? Is it the golden ratio that makes us compelled to like such paintings and architecture as the pyramids, The Last Supper and The Mona Lisa? It is this i want to explore - the use of the golden ratio on perception with want of culminating in a large scale project which shall be detailed at a later date.
This is going to be huge.
