Forest Ideogram – Commercial Building | Nepal

Naxal Complex – Forest Ideogram – Allegory of Perspective

  • This building is the incarnation of the idea of perspective. Perspective is an angle of looking at the phenomenon we call life. Among other things, the meaning of the composition we observe depends on the angle of view.
  • Tree – At the base of the pattern that shapes this building is a conceptual drawing of a tree. Tree as a basic ethical and aesthetic ornament. The tree is an ideal representation of Bertrand Russell’s Binegation. The tree is an ideal representation of the first principle of contrast. A tree is a representation of a one-many-one pattern. A tree is a representation of two polarities of one singularity. As we see, the form of the tree is ontologically grounded in many concepts that we call metaphysical.
  • The forest, as a group of trees, provides us with an even more complex symbolic picture whose polysemantic offers an infinite series of interpretations. The forest is the place of birth, initiation, growth, individuation, etc. The knowledge of depth (Depth of Forest) enables the understanding of the layers of reality. (sketch – “layers of reality” windows as fruits – explanation of conceptual tree)
  • Forest and language – Two facade sides, two different syntaxes. Each syntax (facade) made up of terms (trees), each term of three constituents (branches, tree, soil). The similarity of our ideograms and languages is not accidental. Language, as an ontological element of existence, can easily recognize the analogues of its constituents in the Forest. Forest, as an exponent of a higher discourse, translates to us the story of the cycle and connection.
  • Noise – Our perspective is always burdened with “noise”. From the creator to the recipient, the impulse loses its original power during its journey through space – ref: Information theory – the journey of the original (artistic) impulse
