Auricle 2010

Clairaudience (mystical hearing) is integral to the Anahatha or heart/stillness Chakra. Through this spiritual centre, we hear the pulse of the universe.

Auricle is composed of four sculptures because four denotes earthly phenomena, grounding us to be accessible to numinous experience.

As we are bound by Earth’s four cardinal points (North, South, East and West),
time’s four seasons/ four lunar weeks we are also associated with four classical
“elements” of fire, air, earth, and water. The association with Earth means that four
symbolizes being “down-to-earth.”

Four is the first composite number is linked to the idea of an other-directed or “composite personality” that takes cues from diverse and often contradictory sources, leading to fiercely
autonomous, “out-of-the-box” thinking.

Auricle allows diverse hearing of disparate thought.
