Net of Being

NEW Holographic Screen Print

Limited Edition 333
Signed & Numbered by Alex Grey

For several years I worked on a large painting titled Net of Being. This image proposes an archetypal symbol for the networked Self, an infinitely interconnected transcendental node seeing in every direction, part of a vast continuum of Godselves. A community is a net of beings, a web of relationships, selves united through a collective vision and language, a shared set of meanings. Over the past decade, as Allyson Grey and I have traveled the planet, we see how my art has been integrated by various subcultures , such as spiritual seekers and healers, tattooists, rockers, psychonauts, and other visionary artists. The Net of BEing icon was catapulted into the mindstream of millions of people in 2006, when the band TOOL used this artwork on their Grammy Award-winning album cover, 10,000 Days. The image was animated in their music video "Vicarious." It was the backdrop for multiple tours, emblazoned on T-shirts and other merchandise. The value of the image is in its symbolism of sacred interconnectedness, or communion. Wearing a Net of Being symbol on one's body as clothing or a tattoo acknowledges our part in a vastness greater than ourselves. — Alex Grey
