The work of Russian artist Michael Gardener is absolutely hypnotic. His latest performance video clocks in at just over15 minutes, but a person may not even notice the passage of time as they stare mesmerized at the visually striking patterns being made.
Essentially, Michael Gardener using a traditional clay spinning table as the base of his performance. But instead of wet clay, he has placed a pile of sand on its smooth surface. When it starts to spin, Michael Gardener uses his fingers to create patterns on its surface, patterns that begin to look a lot like mandalas, a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism that represents the Universe.
From relatively basic to downright intricate, Michael Gardener's sand art performance is enhanced exotic music.
