KOSMOS: MUSIC OF THE SPHERES

AN INSTALLATION BY MIRA BILLOTTE
AUGUST 21st – SEPTEMBER 4TH
THE CREATIVE ALLIANCE AT THE PATTERSON
3134 EASTERN AVENUE, BALTIMORE, MD
WWW.CREATIVEALLIANCE.ORG • 410.276.1651

Artist and musician Mira Billotte (White Magic), focuses on the harmony of the divine ratio between ourselves and the Kosmos. The installation transforms into an environment of spiritual exaltation, a place of ritual, a temple of commune with the Kosmos, bringing forth an ancient instinct, theurgy; the ritual practice of uniting with the divine.

As within us there is a microcosm, so created in this space, a microcosm of the divine macrocosm; sand, sand paintings, Mandalas, fabrics, elements, incense, projections, altar objects, plants, other organic materials and esoteric symbols create a secret diagram of the Universe.
