Why I Paint Sabian Symbols
I just found this recent youtube video made by Ruby Fumizki

She is an astrologer & programmer from Tokyo ... and she painted 360 Sabian symbols, which are used also here on Astro-Seek

I made a short topic about Sabian symbols and Ruby Fumizki last year here:

and there was a question "I wondered about the paintings. What the story was behind them." (@Ram :))

Maybe this video will give some answers :)

I think the Japanese have an interesting visual imagination.

The first thought I had when I heard of Sabian Symbols was of the I-Ching.
I always thought the two were conceptually similar in many ways. I also thought
it was interesting that the artist comes from a culture that has been aware of the I-Ching for hundreds of years. Asian writing is so visual, and yet so subtle at the same time. I always look for that same subtlety in her paintings. It seems like such an odd project to undertake, but who better to do it, and add a fresh perspective than someone who comes from such a visually imaginative culture, and who is already creatively and intellectually primed in advance in some ways, by coming from a culture that has been within the intellectual sphere of the I-Ching for so many centuries. It´s interesting that she talks a little about the pure creativity and little synchronicities that surround the creation of some of the images. The way they slowly take form in her mind. If you read the story of the original Sabian Symbols, her experience sounds like it´s very aligned with the technique and experience of the original "discoverers" of the symbols.
