Judges of Time

Anima Mundi, “Soul of the World”

The conceptual Quantum Art project Anima Mundi is a majestic beacon with a mythic dimension on the boundary between nature and culture. 2 Architectural gates frame the dynamic between heaven and earth and the endlessness 
and in between 14 Judges on monumental seats gather together to consider the ‘Zeitgeist’. 
The centre judge’s head is bowed forward. This bow represents a turning point 
- the Quantum Leap – the human being’s awareness that he or she is a co-creator 
of this world and the responsibility that comes within it.  A process from ‘I’ to ‘We’. The artists call this Quantum Art.

In the early 1980s, the Artwork Anima Mundi arose as a turning point in Western materialistic thinking. We invited landscape architects from the Dutch State Forestry Service to use their perspective on the “new nature” to integrate the Anima Mundi as a place of silence in the Dutch landscape. The project was initiated for thirteen special locations, from the island Pampus in the IJmeer to the Mali-veld in The Hague.

The floor of Anima Mundi bears identifiable symbols of the world’s 5 great religions as symbols of the birth of light out of the darkness of the earth. In the sixth symbol, the world religions grow together into a single, monumental flower of universal spirituality

The twin poles of male and female play an essential role in the history of humanity. The Anima and the Animus seek a true harmony. The tall backs of the seats will, in time, be adorned with brief words of wisdom from seven male and seven female bright lights from the field of Changing Awareness (names like Karen Armstrong, the Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, Lynne McTaggart, Erwin Laszlo, Deepak Chopra, Barbara Marx Hubbard etc.), as a mirror of the soul, and a reflection of the time.

In this way, Anima Mundi will grow to become a universal, contemporary, contemplative meeting place, inspired by the Greek “agora” or “stoa”, to stand alongside the likes of Stonehenge, Easter Island, Auroville in India, the Gates of Christo and the pilgrimage Santiago Di Compostella. Anima Mundi as a beacon of the 21st century is a modern-day power station driving the awakening universal consciousness. A silent monument, a living place of pilgrimage for humanity on its way to a New Renaissance.

THE ART-PROJECT ANIMA MUNDI REPRESENTS THE TURNING POINT IN WESTERN MATERIALISTIC THINKING. ANIMA MUNDI IS AN EXPRESSION OF THE WAY IN WHICH SOCIETY PERCEIVES THE CHANGING ENVIRONMENT IT LIVES IN. THE ARTIST OBSERVES WITH WONDER THE HUGE DEVELOPMENTS UNPARALLELED IN HISTORY.

THE PACE OF EVOLUTION IS INCREASING. IT EVOKES THE FEELING THAT ONE IS STANDING ON THE THRESHOLD, ABOUT TO TAKE A MAJOR LEAP.

TRADITIONAL DIVIDING LINES AND BOUNDARIES VANISH, WORLDWIDE COMMUNICATION HAS BECOME  A REALITY AND NEW SPIRITUAL, SOCIAL, POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC BONDS ARE BEING FORGED.

WE ARE STANDING AT THE GATE OF A NEW WORLD CULTURE, WHICH CAN NO LONGER BE EXPRESSED IN TRADITIONAL SYMBOLS, CONCEPTS AND EMOTIONS ONLY. FOR THIS REASON THE PROJECT CARRIES THE SUBTITLE ‘JUDGES OF TIME’.

HERE THE CONCEPT OF ANIMA MUNDI SPRINGS TO LIFE: A MONUMENTAL OPEN GARTHERING PLACE OF 99 METRES LONG, 12 METRES WIDE AND 6.66 METRES HIGH, INSPIRED BY THE GREEK AGORA OR STOA AS A UNIVERSAL CONTEMPORARY , CONTEMPLATIVE MEETING POINT.

ANIMA MUNDI IS AN EXPRESSION OF THE ‘ZEITGEIST’ IN WHICH MAN IS BECOMING AWARE THAT HE IS A CO-CREATOR OF THIS WORLD AND THAT THIS NEW SENSE OF LIFE BRINGS WITH IT A  NATURAL RESPONSIBILITY. THIS ‘AWAKENING’ RELEASES AN ENTIRELY NEW TYPE OF CREATIVE AND SPIRITUAL ENERGY IN EVERYONE:  QUANTUM-ART.

ANIMA MUNDI AS A CHAIN THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

THE CONCEPT ANIMA MUNDI AIMS TO BECOME A CHAIN OF CONTEMPORARY STOAS IN COLLABORATION WITH ARTISTS  OF DIFFERENT CULTURES.  ALL ANIMA MUNDI PROJECTS TO BE REALISED WILL BE BASED ON THE INITIAL DESIGN, CONSISTENT WITH FORM AND  DIMENSIONS AS WITH THE GATES AND SEATS AS UNIVERSAL BLUEPRINTS. ARTISTS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD WILL BE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE  IN THESE PROJECTS TO EXPRESS – ON THE MONUMENTAL SEATS   – THEIR VISION OF A NEW MAN AND WORLD VIEW.

IT IS OUR WISH THAT THE ART PROJECTS – ANIMA MUNDI – BLOSSOM INTO INSPIRING MONUMENTS OF  A CHANGING AWARENESS, BEARERS OF AN EMERGING NEW UNIVERSAL MULTI- CULTURAL SOCIETY,

MAN ON HIS WAY TO A NEW RENAISSANCE.
