Alive: From Nothing to Something and Back

Alive: From Nothing to Something & Back is an exploration of design for transcendence. The project begins at the sheer wonder — and improbability — of our very existence. With the simple and eternal circle at its core, Alive is a body of work inspired by the central idea that Truth cannot be learnt; it must be experienced. It is an attempt to raise as many questions as find answers:

① Why is there Something Rather than Nothing?
② Can letters transcend their epistemic roots?
③ How do we best represent Ultimate Reality?
④ How can we make our experiences experienceable to others?

The project is divided into four parts, the links for which are above. Find the entire documentation here.
