Contemporary artist Louis De Cordier was the expedition coordinator. The vision of the Mataha-expedition is seen by Louis De Cordier as an early foray of a holistic movement to enable research and innovation through the cooperation of varied art & science disciplines. Devoted to the preservation and investigation of Egyptian antiquities, he started the project with a serie of private lectures, funding the project with the sale profits of the Golden Sun Disk. A timepiece designed by Louis De Cordier to ignite the global fire of comprehensive awareness and awakening. An opener of ways to meditate about our human condition and the destiny of our species. The record incorporates sacred geometry, earth sciences and astronomy. Its message reflects the state of Man, broken free, wandering endlessly around in an ever-changing space. The sculpture is a place for rest, a sacred instrument for moving through this dynamic and chaotic spacetime. The Golden Sun Disk, an archaeological artifact of the future, is an expression of artistic and technological creation and a symbol of human-scaled introspection. In the eventuality of the fall of civilization, the design of the time piece conceals the power and hope to transmit its content to very distant generations.
