In addition to his work in the Faculty of Industrial Design at the T.U. Delft, for the last decade Quartel began deepening his insights by connecting the visual process with social and existential issues. Even before that time he has delved into the two currents of New Age Thinking; the political and spiritual. As co-worker of Share International he has developed a vision of the future and the spiritual nature of man. He started looking for new ways to combine abstraction with mystical, metaphysical and esoteric concepts and came to see ethics as a form of beauty.
