Order & Chaos
Order & Chaos
The Hebrew translation of chaos can be תוהו ובוהו (pronounced tohu v’vohu) which is in the beginning of Genesis in the TORAH, תורה. The idea of creating an image using a Tav, ת, as a common element in תורה and the first word in the Hebrew phase, תוהו ובוהו, took hold. The image contains symbolic elements contrasting my view of chaos and torah. The “chaos” I visualized contained aspects of nothingness and destruction. The “Torah” contained order, clarity and positive human possibilities. The background is a mosaic of photomicrographs of thin-sections of rock viewed through a polarizing microscope.
