The Incredible Journey That is Consciousness

The Incredible Journey That is Consciousness

The Incredible Journey That Is Consciousness is a limited-run book by Alex Fuller and Gabe Usadel, that “invites each reader to interpret a landscape of symmetries, simplicities and geometric structures.”

“Squares, circles and triangles are at the core of what makes the industrial world around us. A universal visual language apparent in all things — the tools we use, the fashion we wear, the buildings we live in and the communications we see.

Visionary modernist architects, designers and artists such as Wassily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian, El Lissitzky, and Josef Albers celebrated both the beauty of form as well as the functional potential hidden within these 3 primary shapes and colors.”
