The Four Horsemen

  • Samuel Gibbs
My first MA project was under the topic of shapes, each student was to pick at random a shape out of a hat, the choices were circle, triangle and square. I picked square. I intially looked at a geometric route for the projcet, which lead me into square numbers and cubic crystal formations. Unfortunately, I had researched all I could and designed numerous things from the topic of quartz & crystals before, in my Silica book.
Thus forcing me to research more into something different, - a religious/spiritual route. The idea for the horsemen came from biblical depictions of the number 4.
I wanted to create something heavenly and celestial out of the darkness that’s written within revelations. I attempted to turn each horemen into a pristine diety, bringing their trademark associations to life around them.
