Carpet Diem is the title of a permanent carpet installation I created at the GO! office, downtown San Francisco. Its title points out to a new use of this recycled material. Over the last couple of weeks I hand cut 108 pieces of carpet that, following a geometric pattern, playfully engage with the almost 40' long office wall.
With my labyrinths I look for connection and interaction with the public, inviting them to wander along an alternative journey to the sometimes imposed urban layout. The same as the labyrinth proposes a new sacred territory for meditation and awareness, the geometric pattern of this carpet installation offer the public a powerful meditation tool. Geometric patterns, labyrinths or mandalas have taken me to travel around the world to places where I've witnessed the connection between these intricate constructions and ancient magical rituals.
