About the Artwork
“Hands do the hard work: they plant seeds and reap the harvest; they lay bricks out of which cities grow. And hands create: imagine a sculptor poised before a block of clay. Within the clay is the imagined creation, which the sculptor has already begun to shape in his mind's eye, one of a thousand ideas waiting to happen. In much the same way, the hand is poised before the global economy with the intent of reshaping and redirecting it, driven by a vision of its true potential. And like the artist’s creation, it will be perfectly formed and transcend all that came before.”

Bridges connect. Our work is about connecting the "new economy" space to the mainstream world of business and finance. Bridges signify linkage, transformation, hope. Bridges also represent structure, texture, diversity, and resiliency. Bridges are beautiful. We like bridges.
The background designs on the website are mathematical fractals, signifying the essential information and energy flows of finance within a vibrant and sustainable economic system. Fractals can be split into parts, each of which is a reduced copy of the whole, a property called self-similarity. Fractals are found repeatedly in nature, such as in the pattern of a leaf, a shell, a snow flake, a mountain range, or lightning. The term “fractal” was coined by Benoit Mandelbrot, who has written a book about fractal patterns in financial markets with Richard Hudson called The (Mis)Behavior of Markets. Many believe that natural fractals can serve as a model and metaphor for sustainable systems' design characteristics, including a resilient financial system and a sustainable economy.
