The Flower of Life and the Infinite Self consists of two symbiotic pieces: a geodesic dome with a tessellated fabric roof resembling the flower of life, and interior walls mounted with geometrically arranged convex mirrors that form dynamic reflections of visitors as they walk around the dome. Drawing inspiration from Buckminster Fuller and M.C. Escher, this artwork presents a different persona during the day and night, providing visitors with a colourful meditative atmosphere under geometry and reflections.
