Peace Cubes / Virtual Light and Colour Cubes
artdatabasedataperfect digital engineselectronic publishinghealinginformation ecologylight and colourmathematicsnonviolenceone light in allpeacepeace cubes |
    Role: Co-Facilitator and Co-Developer
    Development and dissemination of a proliferating set of images based on developed models of the peace cubes / virtual light and color cubes as embodiments of properties of light and of nature. The existence of the cubes was discovered in response to a request from the outgoing Executive Director of UN-Habitat to explore the use of colour to identify the role of partners in a proposed web site for follow-up to Habitat II.

    The Light and Colour Cubes were dedicated as Peace Cubes at an Equinox Earthday celebration next to the Peace Bell at United Nations Headquarters in March 1997 and have emerged as icons of Information Ecology and of a holistic approach - with the dimensions of red, blue and green appearing to correspond to dimensions of economy, society and environment - the three "pillars of sustainability" - as well as to dimensions of body, mind and spirit.

    Queries on Unity with Nature
    Queries, or probing questions, representing a compilation and synthesis of queries on Unity with Nature that had been developed by Friends (Quakers) at Monthly and Yearly meetings across the U.S.A., from a perspective that sees people in unity with nature, not apart from it. These queries were subsequently published as the Quaker contribution to the 1989 Environmental Sabbath resource guide developed by the U.N. Environment Programme.

    Home for the Peace Cubes - Virtual Light and Colour Cubes that are at the centre of a three-dimensional mathematics of colour and light and that can transform our understanding of the nature and dimensions of light and colour. The Peace Cubes can also serve as vital elements in a new global curriculum on mathematics, colour and light, as symbols for the One Light in all of Creation, and as teaching tools on the properties of knowledge-based economies, and as an introduction to the properties of zero-based economy. All of the images are computer-generated, the most recent images based on HTML tables generated from a DataPerfect database, as were most of the sets of web pages of images.

    Peace Tiles - Gifts of Light
    A set of the ninety-six peace tiles - based on mirror images of the faces and the cycles of all possible pairs of contiguous faces of the Peace Cubes. Each colourful tile is framed below a frieze of the corresponding faces. The bottom frieze contains the photographic negative of the tile. Below that are the sixteen "cycle tiles" corresponding to the faces of the main tile. Sound complicated? In practice it is easy - and fun if you let your eyes and feelings guide you. Virtually no words, yet simple to grasp visually.

    The web site for the Peace Tiles was launched on October 24, United Nations Day, 2000.

    Birth of the Rainbow Cubic Sine Waves
    An exploration in connections between the Light and Colour Cubes and the colours of the rainbow, Rainbow Cubic Sine Waves represents a mapping of the colurs of the cubes onto a sine wave, in which the cycle of colours seems to evoke the colour sequence of the rainbow. The development of the Rainbow Cubic Sine Wave took place over two days very shortly on the birth of the Cubic Colour Wheel, reflecting an openness to softening the sharp edges of the Cubes, as well as to focus attention on some of the rhythmic and cyclical properties of the cubes.
