in my digital mandala my focus was on memories and how they fade with time but we try to frame them, that is the explanation of why I used geometric shapes to complement the images. the other reason why the geometric shapes are there is because I think that people look back to their past to make sense of their present, they try to find the missing pieces.the images are of people in my life friends and family the colors are vivid and also enhanced on photoshop to make more emphasis on the happiness this memories provoke, also water and fog overlap symbolizing the passage of time and how sometimes we remember something being better than it actually was. the fog also represents my hometown because of the altitude it gets foggy and it is something that I remember as beautiful and unique.
my handmade mandala was more about my personality. I considered the quiz which I’ve done before and I always get the same result, the debater (ENTP),The ENTP personality type is the ultimate devil’s advocate, thriving on the process of shredding arguments and beliefs and letting the ribbons drift in the wind for all to see. No one loves the process of mental sparring more than ENTPs, as it gives them a chance to exercise their effortlessly quick wit, broad accumulated knowledge base, and capacity for connecting disparate ideas to prove their points. I tried to play with the percentages in my proportion with the circle in the middle and the shapes emanating from it, my personality typical be dominant and tends to have great ideas but the execution is the problem thats why I left unfinished parts in my mandala. the pattern has integrity in the middle but it becomes erratic and random toward the edge represent the different ideas I can have and my love for playing devil’s advocate. the fragmentation in the paper pieces represents my name because it is long and has to be fragmented to be processed it also shows the strategic and calculating side of my personality. I decided to not use color to let the list and shadow demonstrate the duality within a personality.
