Book: The Politics of Green Transformations
Successfully creating bigger, bolder and more meaningful experiences is a tall order. It's challenging, but necessary to break through the information free-for-all that defines our digital "airwaves". When we find a communication platform that not only conveys a message, but also moves people - in spirit and in action - it's worth exploring. And that's what we've done.
It involves projecting static or animated digital media onto just about any surface conceivable instead of being constrained by traditional, flat screens. When you scroll through this site and flip through the Book of Transformations, you'll see the different ways artists have conceptualized and delivered larger-than-life visual experiences using projection mapping. Legend has it that the Yi Jing is perhaps the oldest known book in the world. Some claim that it is even derived from an oracle-system known as the Tortoise Oracle.

This tortoise motif will be an accompanying image throughout our own series on the Unborn I Ching and will be represented as such:. For Taoists, the snake is well-known for its vibrant cultivation of Primordial-Qi Energy which becomes activated throughout the chakra-system as the spiral movement of the Great Kundalini, or Serpent Energy.

As we know from past blog posts here, this is indeed a True Alchemy of Mastery over the samsaric elements via the Self-Transformation of our innate wholeness in the Unborn.
