Computer (P)Arts

The tiny bits and connectors forming the inner-workings of computers become spiritual art in Italian artist Leonardo Ulian’s Technological Mandalas series. The often-unseen parts’ beautiful colors and forms are revealed in Ulian’s hand-made lovely, intricate constructions, which are simultaneously inspired by Indian mandalas and the machine-made perfection of technology. “My circuits/ Mandalas…simply function as stimulus to produce simple questions like: what will happen if a real electric current flows through the Circuit/Mandala?”
