Sometimes the best projects are the ones that you spontaneously decide to make from the stuff you’ve already got lying around, like this spectacular series of photographs documenting “mandalas” that collaborative husband and wife visual artist team Hillerbrand+Magsamen made from stuff they found in their own home.

The word “mandala” is from the classical Indian language of Sanskrit. Loosely translated to mean “circle,” a mandala is far more than a simple shape. It represents wholeness, and can be seen as a model for the organizational structure of life itself–a cosmic diagram that reminds us of our relation to the infinite, the world that extends both beyond and within our bodies and minds. We have created mandala’s within our own home out of the stuff we have found lying around in our own creative exploration.
