My research on Sacred Geometry led me to the discovery of Crop Circle Sculpture and the work undertaken to identify the artist by deconstructing and reconstructing the aerial image. A presence of advanced quantum mathematics in particular quantum
geometry is present and goes beyond the knowledge and the understanding at this point in time.
After researching a variety of crop circles from the past 10 year period I discovered the representation of the progression of the learning of
mathematics. The book used for this art piece is an old secondary high school mathematics text book of algebra, trigonometry and dimensional geometry.
This provided a universal language to support a selection of crop circles that
contained mathematical form such as binary, Phi, geometric theorems, 2D and 3D geometry. I could use crop circles as a way of developing an advanced school of thought, that is a school book for future generations of our youth to decipher crop circles
to learn quantum mathematics.
I found two books Part One and Part Two published in 1969 and well used by a female student from the Eyre High School in Australia. The Part One book fitted the criteria needed with its four chapters on Algebra, Trigonometry,
2D and 3D dimensional geometry.
The Part two book was also used but only for the unprinted pages to use for printing the new pages, to insert into the Part one book, to alter the book's contents.
The results of my research lead to the inclusion
of two crop circles for each of the five chapters. Crop Circles were chosen for the containmen of binary codes for the algebra, phi and theorems for the trigonometry, two-dimensional geometry for the 2D chapter and three-dimensional
geometry for the 3D chapter.
Cuts were made through layers of pages to alter the books construction, to represent an appropriation of the crop circles that altered the appearance of the landscape.
The chapter 'tabs' are made
from balsa wood and twine (jute) to remind us of the 'hoax' theories that Crop Circles are made with planks of wood tied to lengths of rope.
