Mandala Lab, an interactive installation in London
October 16 : 12h00 – November 25 : 18h00
The Mandala Lab is an interactive installation that invites curiosity about our emotions. Consider how complex feelings show up in your everyday life and imagine how you might have the power to transform them.
Inspired by powerful Buddhist principles, the lab features five thought-provoking, playful experiences – including videos accompanied by scents, a sculpture that invites collective breathing, and curated percussion instruments dipped in waters – that guide you along an inner journey focused on self-awareness and awareness of others. See, smell, touch, and breathe your way through the space, designed to inspire connection, empathy, and learning.
The Mandala Lab includes artist contributions from:
