Our Art Adventures took us to a wedding! Marrying Japanese Artist, Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Rooms with the art of Mandalas in our 6-9 year old classes. CCA built our own reflection rooms to incorporate MATH and ART.
A mandala is a complex abstract design that is usually circular in form. In fact, “mandala” is a Sanskrit word that means “circle”. Mandalas generally have one identifiable center point, from which emanates an array of symbols, shapes and forms. Mandalas can contain both geometric and organic forms.
What percentage would you need to design, in order to create the illusion of a full circle?
Notice the fact that only 2 surfaces were used, to create the 3rd and 4th illusionary planes which complete the circle!
