Dana Lynne Andersen …Zeitgeist.

“You are infinite. Nothing is so important as for you to know this truth.”

Paramhansa Yogananda

“If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is : Infinite.”

William Blake

Zeitgeist by Dana Lynne Andersen

Zeitgeist by Dana Lynne Andersen

Zeitgeist is a German word that means “The Spirit of the Times”. It is used in reference to the general intellectual, moral and cultural climate of an era – the living unfoldment of our collective consciousness. Zeitgeist is like a river pulsing with living currents myriad trajectories of thoughts, ideas, and events that weave together as they unfold simultaneously. In this painting, images of escalating natural catastrophes-volcanoes, melting glaciers, tsunamis and hurricanes, entwine with images of our emerging global consciousness-neurons, fiber optic strands, the earth as viewed from above and the myriad galaxies.

In our times a global brain is awakening, laying the tracks of its neural network in fiber optic bundles beneath the sea and satellites circling the earth. The lives of millions now weave together in instant messages of words and images; the camera follows us and we see ourselves en masse-competing, clashing, and inextricably bound together. The fleeting fads of fashion and the entrenched habits of culture, the generative font of invention and the playing out of ancient enmeshments, the inertia of ambition in motion and dogma in self preservation; the living dynamics ofhistory unfold, and in the lightning fast weaving of a thousand spinning threads, Zeitgeist entwines us all in the tapestry of our common humanity.
