Since the dawn of history, Sacred geometry has been found in various cultures around the world. Our version of the Metatron Cube includes the seed of life. The Seed of Life represents the interconnection of existence on Earth while simultaneously showing that all originated from the same source. Furthermore, it holds all five platonic solids. Earth (cube), Water (icosahedron), Air (octahedron), Fire (tetrahedron), and Ether (dodecahedron).  These are analogous to the states of matter: solid, liquid, gas, and plasma. Sacred geometry is therefore the underlying base for all matter in the universe. Similarly, The audio collage tries to find out what is at the core of human identity by asking 20 people to describe what they think their identity is comprised of. These answers come from diverse cultures and ages fusing with the light of the animated sacred geometry to question the viewer about his own definition of identity.
