The Ritual Mandala
A couple years ago while traveling in Bhutan, I was trekking in the Himalayas and unexpectedly began what’s become an ongoing project for me: the ritual mandala. I make nature mandalas out of foraged natural materials that I collect while on walks, and then document them. Each mandala is location- and season-specific – I only use what I can gather in the immediate area. Additionally, each mandala also represents a few moments of being very present, and a few moments of creative expression. Living on a flower farm provides with me loads of beautiful mandala-making materials.
