What an amazing table. The marble (middle right) kinetically moves through the sand drawing out different patterns to create a very zen-like meditative instrument. The Sisyphus, is the brainchild of former doctor, Bruce Shapiro, who quit his job to follow his passion: using computer-controlled machines to create art.
About this table:
What music brings to your ears, Sisyphus brings to your eyes. Kinetic art, technology and design merged in stunning meditative beauty.
…the idea behind Sisyphus grew out of a of joking challenge: could he make a robot to rake a Zen garden?
It needs to be seen in action to fully appreciate its meditative qualities:
“All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street corner or in a restaurant’s revolving door.”
~ Albert Camus
My Mission: connecting with our Inner Light in delightful, inspiring ways
For me, creating mandalas is more than just coloring pretty patterns in a circle. I do it because my spiritual evolution and creativity require it of me. My mandala designs come about within an active meditative state, connected with my higher self, my spiritual guides and nature spirits.
Together, we bring into form, mandala art the allows me to re-connect with my own inner peace and joy, letting me explore and expand my own creative spirit to however far and in whatever direction I want to take it.
As part of my own spiritual journey, I encourage, and hopefully inspire, others to explore their own creativity, to help them re-connect with their own inner peace and joy. As a means to that end, I make all of my mandalas available for people to color. Why should I have all the fun?
