    Spanish artist Ivan Puig is known for playful, poetic installations. In his latest work robotic arms rotate to hit the bottles, creating echoing sounds as well as concentric and repeated patterns representing the mandalas. The mandalas are drawings that serve to focus and quiet the mind in many eastern cultures.

    For its part, modern life offers endless motion pictures, comfort, science, technology, technocrats, Democrats, anarchists, fatalists… a broad portfolio for consumption. In the combination of these antagonistic points gestate the Mandalas for modern living.

    However you interpret his work, it’s lovely to wake up to on a Saturday morning.
