The 12 Zodiac
The Constellations are part of the celestial realm, between the universal and the terrestrial.
They bring knowledge from the cosmos.
Each constellation encapsulates a message to raise up humans' consciousness on natural laws.
The stars are scanographs of real plants.
Scanography is an artistic practice that uses digital scanner technology.
Instead of digitizing a paper document, I choose a plant, flowers, seeds, and stones
and then I organize them according to certain geometric shapes.
The voice of the constellations was created using a TEXT to SPEECH app
Considering the symmetry of natural shapes, plants, animals etc.
geometry must be the language of the Universe.

The intention is defined as “an aim or plan”. The power of intention is the power of a focused mind. When focusing our mental energy on something, we’re able to give more of our brainpower to it.

Capricorn keeps humanity grounded and focused on practical matters.
The Earth resonates with the stars
AQUARIUS is an air sign ruled by Saturn
