Urban Mandalas are photo collages that pay tribute to cities around the world. These kaleidoscope-like designs are a mix of architecture, natural landscapes, public sculptures, and graffiti. Each city is photographed in person and is then digitally composed. New cities are revealed via Instagram & Facebook.
What is a mandala? A mandala is defined as any circular pattern. One of my inspirations for this project are Buddhist Tibetan Sand Mandalas [Wikipedia], which act as a map of the cosmos and represent the impermanent nature of our existence. For my Urban Mandalas, pixels take place of sand to symbolize the idea that everything is connected—all is one.
