Ziggy

Art, Geometry, Laser Cut

Description

Ziggy, short for Ziggurat, is a terraced temple/stepped pyramid inspired by early Mesopotamian and Mesoamerican megaliths. These ancient structures emerged all across the globe amongst civilizations with no discernible connection to one another. They all shared a common purpose of ceremonial, astrological, and spiritual uses.

As civilizations evolve, our belief systems shift, and architectural structures along with them. These edifices represent a snapshot of human achievement and exemplify human potential, ingenuity and complexity.

Ziggy is a hexahedron pyramid, inspired by the ziggurats and temples of the past while channeling the aesthetic of the future. By emulating well known ancient structures while using a combination of mirrored, dichroic, and translucent materials with intricately laser cut patterns, we have created something that feels both old and new.

Ziggy is a familiar yet foreign experience, offering an opportunity for those who see it to feel both comforted and surprised by it’s intricacies. It is a space dedicated to shifting the perspective of participants and offers a thread of connectivity and balance to those who enter; a rewarding experience from every angle.
