I have been talking clouds as of late. My friend Nicholas Rubin and I briefly gushed over clouds as design motifs. There is something meditative and even mechanical (in a lovely way) about the repitition of symobls like cells or tiles. His clouds usually come from the Tibetan tradition. Here, above, the title of  art is called “Ocean of Monadic Fire”. I like this duality of symbolism of clouds and fire.
