The humble loop. A shape and design we have never really put much thought into, I imagine? When actually placing thought into the idea of what a loop is though, the importance and gravitas of the loop is instantly apparent.
In a physical sense, the loop is one of the most perfect shapes that can be found within this universe – or should I say almost found – as it could be argued no loop is perfect. When considering what a loop can symbolise however, the symbolism transcends that of most ideas within existence. A shape that has the power to go on forever, a shape that hints at completion and cyclical events, the only shape that symbolises love and the shape that defines infinity.
Understanding how people understand the idea of the loop, in my opinion, is to understand people full stop. The loop can be seen as safe and secure, binding and predictable. For some people however, the loop can be seen as monotonous, infinite yet asphyxiating, the root of the seemingly endless grind through life.
Remember that the loop is a shape like any other, one that can be utilised like any other. Don’t work around the loop, allow the loop to work around what you want.
