Flower Power Trip (2009)

8 min 44 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Sound

"In this work I used vibrating colour in a 1960s psychedelic style, and fused it with seven pure colours of chakra, adding black. From this I started the process of creating thousands of digital eight point Mandalas, with a focus on circle, octagon, lotus and lines. The work shows the appearance and disappearance of stroboscopic Mandalas. Supported by rhythm and music, the work seeks to evoke altered landscape, and a curiosity for different cultures and experiences. The sound is inspired by my first trip to India in 1977."
