Real-time software (Processing)
2017 +ongoing




In various cultures around the world, mandalas are used for focus, meditation, spiritual inquiry and to establish a sacred space. They’re also just really pretty.



Mandala is a wildflower for the algorithmic age.

The custom software relies heavily on random chance to digitally paint its own “non/sacred geometries”.



Every 15 seconds, the system captures an image of itself, memorializing the moment as a new mandala, unique from all others.



Each Mandala is digitally printed in a single edition, “1 of 1”, making each one Mandala of a kind.
