Kempa.com - Personal blog written by Adam Kempa from Ann Arbor, MI
I saw a link to this series of photographs, depicting a group of monks working on a sand mandala, on the Kircher Society blog last week. While I'm not a huge fan of monks or sand-painting, I am a fan of large-scale, glacially-paced art projects and behind-the-scenes documentation. Clearly, the fusion of the two via stop-motion animation is among my favorite things ever (see here).
These photographs were practically SCREAMING to be turned into an animation of some sort, so I felt it was my duty to download them and whip up a stop-motion animated gif.
Shortly after doing this, I found that the creation of a strikingly similar Mandala had been animated here. This one is available as a quicktime movie, and features significantly more frames, at a significantly lower resolution. Compromises!
