WELCOME TO THE HOMEPAGE OF PATRICK DILLON
The mandorla is the almond shape formed at the intersection of two circles.
I use it as a metaphor for my work in cultural ecology. Cultural ecology is about how people interact with their environments. There is a constant interplay between our immediate experiences and how we know the world. The three arrows arranged as a triangle in the left hand circle represent our immediate experiences. The moment we experience something we make connections with what we already know and feel, the relational constructs and emotions that define our personal history. The three arrows arranged as a star in the right hand circle represent how we know the world. The mandorla reflects how experience and understanding are constantly reforming each other.
