Sam Songailo’s Zen Garden is far different from what you might expect from such a name.

Rock-like masses were positioned at random across the ground and black paint makes up the most mesmerizing part of the room. Mimicking the raked-sand pattern from Japanese gardens, Sam Songailo’s Zen Garden features zigzagging lines that extend and bend sharply to captivate the observer completely.
