Blurring the boundaries between science and spirituality, Islamic geometry is traditionally drawn by hand with a ruler and pen, using mathematics that celebrate the order and structure found in the universe to create infinite repeating patterns.

Zarah Hussain’s Numina (2022) combines designs found in the art and architecture of the Islamic world with contemporary digital arts. Mapping animated geometric patterns onto a sculpture composed of tessellating pyramids arranged on a hexagonal grid, Hussain brings a static form to life. The presence of infinite repeating patterns in Islamic spaces is conducive to meditative and transcendent states.
