The ICON is a symbol for Mind and spiritual evolution.  Also known as YE AS OR (Your Everyday Artistic Symbol Of Reality), the ICON is a seminal structure and hieracrchy.  It functions as an integral element grown within Cornfield, where it evolves from two-dimensional geometry into a three-dimensional living symbol.

The ICON is also a meta-structure, a fertile device, if you will, that contains a multitude of images from nature, art history, and the imagination.  It is a visual farm, planted with crops of imagery rotated through the various fields of the structure, all elements to be viewed from a higher perspective and played out in infinite variety and relationship.  In this sense, the ICON also serves as vehicle, containing a condensed version of the story gleaned from the experience of Cornfield.
