Stars and Word Geometry
Yesterday, 6-14, it was a project of creating geometric stars in different places. Each had a poetry quote running around the outside of it. The first was at the muni stop at the NW corner of Dolores park, at 18th and Church. A seven pointed base and two concentric circles. The quote: "When geometric diagrams and digits are no longer the keys to living things.."
The second was at the pet store location at Market and Dolores. A six pointed base and three concentric circles. More of an inverted star. The quote: "You are the messenger who opens mysteries that unfold forever, but avoids words "
Both are attributed to Novalis, 1800.
