Ben Lowder's mission is to draw people's awareness to Nature's sacred geometry by expressing the forms and patterns that are the universal building blocks of material growth structures. This matrix of geometry naturally occurs as the total collective of ideas crystalizes and draws balance out of chaos. Aligning our thoughts and creations to these elemental forces will put us on an evolutionary path toward an abundant future.
