Title: Urban Mandala

Location: 80 S 8th St (IDS Center)

On display until: September 8, 2017

This collage is made from hundreds of photos taken throughout Minneapolis. Composed with images of architecture, nature, sculptures, and graffiti, this Urban Mandala captures our city in a single moment of evolution. Traditional mandalas made by Buddhist Monks are meant to represent the Universe in a state of peace and harmony. This mandala of Minneapolis is inspired by the same principle and presents the city as one interconnected community. I have created several Urban Mandalas of cities around the world. Each is unique in its details, but the form remains the same throughout the series, reminding us of our commonalities.
