Neko Linda Williams

Neko Linda is a digital artist who has been creating ‘scanographic montage’ images since 2005.  Imago Ignota (unknown image) is her constant and ongoing inspiration. Neko Linda’s primary intuition and focus as a poet and artist has been to perceive and reflect on connections between macrocosm and microcosm, and vice-versa.

“Beauty is rather a light that plays over the symmetry of things than that symmetry itself.”  Plotinus

 

The smallest object, whether natural or man-made, holds a particular energy-vibration. Meanwhile, there are 10 times more stars in the night sky than grains of sand in the world’s deserts and beaches – 100 to 400 billion stars in the Milky Way and more than 100 billion galaxies in the Universe (and a single grain of sand has more atoms than there are stars in the Universe).

Where she was born, on her mother’s homeland of Okinawa, there are beaches that have ‘star sand’.  Local legends say that star sand was made of the tiny skeletons of the offspring of the Southern Cross and the North Star who were killed by a giant serpent right after being born in the ocean.  But according to science, these beautiful particles are the exoskeletons of millions of foraminifera – marine protozoans believed to be fossil evidence dating back 550 million years ago, one of the oldest fossils known to man.

Both are acceptable possibilities to Neko’s mind.
