Connecting

Aby Warburg saw Orientation leading to Action in Word and Image.
In our approach a starting point in culture is a quest to connect an individual with the world around them and the world beyond them. Thus the quest for Orientation (Sense Making, Explanation) has a fundamental basis in Connecting, which has three phases in evolution: 1) seeing connections and developing basic symbols to arrive at some links between Microcosm-Macrocosm; 2) establsihing these symbolic forms physically as totem, patterns, customs, buildings, cities and 3) sharing them.
