Poiesis de Calyces (version 1)

Poiesis de Calyces (version 1)

This version is a derivative of the Calyces series. Calyces is the plural form of calyx, and calyx means cup in Latin. Poiesis means a condition or state of creation. I learned of the word poiesis when I was learning some medical terminology extracted from the word hematopoiesis, which means the production of red blood cells from the marrow of bones.

There are simple shapes in this series that resemble cups, and it looks like an elaborate assembly line producing cups from a mythological manufacturing plant.

The original drawing was produced back in 2009 when I was working at Convergys. It was just black and white drawing, but I was able to to hyperbolize some color out of it through some digital filters after scanning it into the computer.

This image is made to be a print, and can easily be matted and framed. It’s a great image to have in a kitchen, or a bathroom, or a bedroom.

I was also thinking this image, and my other mosaic images, would be great as floor designs in atriums of museums, as main floors within custodial banks, or as wall designs on major hospital walls. I was also thinking that some laser technology integrated into a projector could be used to help slightly burn an image into a wall, floor, or area as a template in preparation for the work in filling out the design with whatever materials required to complete the project.
