dc.description.abstract This thesis describes the development of my study of the influence of chinese geomancy on my art. The emphasis is on art forms created for the transportation of my mind to the audience within encompassing space and sculpted forms. The viewer interacts with the experience of the environmental event consisting of laser, sound, word imagery, and the moving figure. In this thesis, I assembled spritual and intuitive experiences that led me to equate Feng Shui as a harmonious aesthetic and a foundation for geomantic art. The purpose is to cite a binder for man's discord with nature and an awareness for earth's harmony. en_US
