Occupy Mandala is comprised of black sand laid directly on the concrete floor.
The text within the mandala is taken from the manifesto of the Occupy Wall Street movement. The destruction of the mandala is projected forward and in reverse on a continual loop within the gallery. The footage is projected above the pile of original black sand.
Occupy Mandala considers the way in which discontent and frustration cannot be truly swept away, like protestors forcibly removed from Zoucotti Park, but instead will continue to manifest in myriad forms until properly addressed.
