Leukos (“Light”, Greek) Petal.
“I have the answer, the orbit of the planet is a perfect ellipse” – Johannes Kepler.
Kepler’s laws of planetary motion include that every planet’s orbit is an ellipse with the Sun at a focus. A revolutionary idea which moved the center of the universe from the Earth to the Sun infuriating the church by no longer putting man at the center of the cosmos. Celebrating revolutionary ideas that arose through fearless research in astronomy, cosmology and mathematics. Finding the overlaps and sweet spots between the geometric and organic, the masculine and feminine using shifting vertical and horizontal lines to inform a gracefulness balance amongst the chaos.
