Nine drawings and nine pieces of jewelry that take inspiration from the Islamic usage of geometry and pattern to elevate the mind. In the Islamic world, these visually rich forms, most often seen in mosques and spiritually important areas, are intended to remind us of the infinite beauty and expansion of the Universe. For Rath, the pursuit of beauty feels like a necessary and radical act and the order and structure of the layers provide solace and hope in an increasingly chaotic and unstable world.
