Sand mandala at Thikse Monastery, Ladakh, India.

Samsara (2011)

Imagine sighing after finishing a detail and it blows out everything you’ve done

That’s basically what these monks do actually.

They create such intricate mandalas to demonstrate the beauty and the fullness of life then blow it all away without a seconds thought to teach us the impermance of life and the “transitory nature of material things”.

Bear in mind that this is a very basic and shallow understanding of the very nuanced and meticulous rituals that surround these sand mandalas.

There might be more details to the ritual but I find most Buddhists like Westerners to walk away with the general gist of the bigger picture of it. Buddhism, as it spread took up many different traditions along the way, including animism or the spiritualities of the indigenous. The details are interesting but not as important as understanding the transience. If those details help, fine, but if it doesn’t aid you into finding enlightenment and only distracts you, let it go.

Mika Aoki  ’ Singing Glass ‘

Japanese artist Mika Aoki embraces the dichotomous nature of glass’s solidity yet fragility. She says of the translucent material: “Unless light shines on it, we can’t confirm the existence of it because it is transparent. But once the light shines on it, glass truly emanates a special presence.” In her series of works titled Singing Glass, the artist presents glass morphed into amoebic and otherworldly forms that leaves the viewer mesmerized. In any other medium, the pieces would lose their intrigue.

Looking through the sculptor’s portfolio, there is a surreal mix of science gone awry and fairy tale-like icy enchantment. In a number of her works, there are glass creatures and abstract figures encased within glass containers, like lab experiments. Because of the dual layers of clear elements, some of the structures within actually look like more like water bubbles. The other pieces that are not trapped within clear encasements, they echo the luminosity and sharp crystallization of ice.
