Electronic Components Used to Make “Technological Mandalas”

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.
