(c)1993-1997 Akio HIZUME
I made an outdoor sculpture called "The
Democracy Steps ". One was realized in Yoshida, Saitama,
JAPAN in 1993. Another was in the Hocking hills State Park, Ohio,
U.S.A. in 1997.
I can also design slope (ramp) for wheelchair using similar method.
It is not ordinary staircase. It is even for
both right and left legs, and for everyone whether whose step
is long or short. It is based on the Fibonacci Sequence. This
quasi- periodic rhythm is very comfortable for human mind and
Peoples understand the effect of Golden Mean by their subconsciousness.
If you climb it, you will relax. I believe that it should be
the standard of gentle staircase. .
I can design the most effective and reasonable
flight of steps based on the Fibonacci Sequence. Because I am
well informed about the Golden Mean Geometry and I was trained
as an architect. I have many practical skill in order to find
the best solution of the Democracy Steps for any slope.
The Fibonacci Sequence is projection (shadow)
of six dimensional lattice
on one dimensional space.
I think the Meditation is a general term of high dimensional
beyond our ordinal linear logic.
Fractal and Chaos geometry are non linear mathematical structure.
The Golden Mean is the simplest fractal generator.
We can think higher matters clearly using such form.
Such matters can never be thought by syllogism.
That is a genuine meditation.
