Signposts

Signposts project relies on the idea of taking away and giving back to the nature. It emerged from my observation of Tibetan sand mandalas; since raw material is acquired it goes through a number of transformations (crushing, dying, dripping) to form a circular relief of religious importance to Tibetan monks. Then Mandala is destroyed and sand is poured into the river during the final ritual. Aim of the project was to celebrate forgotten area in my home town called White Pit by setting a number of signposts leading to this spot. I’ve collected raw materials, like leaves, sand and pine needles for casting building blocks of my totems. Due to limited range of available products and tools I had to create my own dyes and adhesives using basic commodities. Resulting forms are neutral to the environment and would slowly dissolve anywhere affected by moisture and temperature.
