My first mandala project, this was specifically made for a call for art. The call came from a company that recycled and reused electronic components.
This Old Mouse was an exhibit designed to show creative use of recycled parts in art. I chose to bead this mandala, using circuit boards as cabochons, and to extend the circuit board pattern though the beaded borders. The four directions are marked by SAT cable connectors. I added screw downs from monitor connectors, a SAT cable and circuits for flourish.
The code in the background was printed onto fabric and then painted and beaded. I own a small software company, that code runs an Android app that we developed.
