Artist Leonardo Ulian makes “technological mandalas” from the electronic components. This one reminds me of the cat paintings by Louis Wain, who was rumored to have schizophrenia.

Quote:

I think of my mandalas as ephemeral gizmos, able to trigger the eyes and minds of the viewers with images and thoughts of any sort, but without taking it too seriously. I used the word “ephemeral” because electronic technology is in a way impermanent. It is constantly changing and can become easily obsolete, like sand mandalas can be easily brushed away after days of work.
