GOD TRIP - SERIES

From micro atomic to macro galactic.
In collaboration with Lannie Lê, Business & Life Partner

Travelling from Earth towards the Sun, we arrive at Mercury, the closest planet to our star. The radius of Mercury is 2,439.7 km, and Earth’s is 6,371 km. We see the same ratio in their average orbital distances from the sun, Earth at 149.6M km and Mercury at 108.2M km .


Lines

White: Mercury superimposed on Earth, a perfect pentagon drawn inside of Mercury, the sides extending to a perfect pentagram, each point touching the edge of earth.

Red: Mercury superimposed on Earth, a perfect octagon drawn outside of Mercury, the sides extending to a perfect octagram, each point touching the edge of earth.


Tiny planets in formation

The orbital distances of Mercury (108.2M km average) and Earth (149.6M km average) to the Sun can also be drawn as perfect pentagrams and octograms. We see Earth represented in different views, starting from the top moving clockwise: North Pole, Eastern Hemisphere, South Pole, Western Hemisphere


Background Pattern: Lines based on patterns found in The Great Mosque of Kairouan, Tunisia (AD 670)

About the Artist

Khalid ‘Dreams’ Mokhtarzada

Born in Kabul, Afghanistan, Khalid was smuggled on a camel out of the Soviet–Afghan war zone by his ever courageous young mother. After a few brief stops around the world, he arrived in Canada at the age of three. Khalid’s upbringing was loving and arduous, which forged and honed his philosophy, sensibility, and capability. From his earliest memories to the stories his family loves sharing about him, Khalid has always been inquisitive, artistic, and systematic. 

Born and raised into a Muslim family and culture, at some point young Khalid ventured out to learn about other faiths, including Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, and Atheism. This spiritual exploration has led him full circle back to Islam. Inspired by Islamic art, Khalid’s most recent artistic work embodies the universal language of math, geometry, singularity, and infinity.    

Khalid continues his journey on Earth as an explorer, artist, designer, learner, teacher, mentor, leader, adviser, speaker, organizer, and many other hats he wears. Outside of work, Khalid loves being with his rambunctious wife Lan and creative children Philo + Sophie. 

Khalid, also known as Kal, Kalatic, and Kaptain to some, is the founder and CEO of Pixel Dreams.
