Kiano Zamani's sacred geometry

The NSCAD student prepares a show of sacred geometry and Iranian music for meditative qualities.

For artist Kiano Zamani, sacred geometry is the art of the universe. For his audience, Zamani wants his sacred geometry-based art to be soothing. "The paintings are supposed to give you a feeling of relaxation," writes the interdisciplinary student from NSCAD. The repetitive shapes fanning out in a kaleidoscope pattern do give a trance-like feel, and Zamani's coupling his artwork with Iranian music. "The music...is meditative and it is used to put the individual into a meditative state of mind." Asked what inspired Zamani to put together a work like this for the Anna Leonowens Gallery, his answer is simple. "It [sacred geometry] is beautiful to look at, and Iranian traditional music is beautiful to hear." The Persian artist will also have videos, graphics and poetry on display in the gallery. Head down for the opening reception Monday, July 26, 5:30-7pm.
