Photography is an important part of exploring the most mesmerizing symmetry and composition in this project. In the case of  video, shimmering movement add another dimension.

This is the very first mandala image that inspired the whole project.

Inspiration from Technology

This is the very first mandala image that inspired the whole project. It was made by photographing a hairbrush with a koleidescope filter. The brush had black tines tipped with pink plastic, on a pad of charcoal rubber. The resulting photo looked like the tines could be embroidery stitches and pink seedbeads on a grey fabric. The pink of the brush handle is the central swirl.
