Shapes and remembrance; Geometry and visual thought

  • Intellectual experience and visual thought; returning to reality through the qualities of dhikr, the geometry of straight lines. Shapes as a way of remembrance.
  • Ideal or paradigmatic forms: The Kaaba.
  • Tastir as an expression of the eternal and the unchangeable.
  • Tauriq and Tastir in the Shahada and in Hispanic-Muslim art. The search for an unattainable core.
  • Connections between Tastir and some conceptualizations of the 20 th century.
