SANDALA v2.0

The SANDALA is a contemporary installation inspired by the Tibetan Sand Mandala tradition - symbolizing the Buddhist doctrinal belief in the transitory impermanent nature of material existance.

Installation comprises of white playground sand layed down in a circle of any size surrounded by flowers. Plastic flowers are used (out bush) instead of real for longevity and environmental reasons.

The theme is in continual evolution, i.e. experimenting with flowers, adding a wooden base under sand to give geometric shape to projection surface, adding black light to perimeter string and flower ring, adding local natural materials....
