Mindful Mondays: A New Type of Sculpture

Each Monday, I would like to share a reminder about the importance of being mindful.  These will come from literature, popular culture, music--anywhere one might get this sort of everyday life nudge.

This morning, to start another beautiful week, I thought it would be good to share something inspiring and intriguing.  You may have seen these before, but if you haven't they are a perfect concrete example of bringing and utilizing mindfulness in your work.

Similar to the spray paint space paintings, these anamorphic sculptures are incredibly impressive.  Not only the hard work, planning, and expertise that goes into executing them, but also the presence of mind, patience, and determination required to practice, develop, and share these arts.

Take a look at these other fascinating anamorphic sculptures by Jonty Hurwitz, a London-based artist.  These sculptures look stretched out and perhaps unintelligible, but reveal themselves when viewed in a reflective cylinder.  See more photos of his work here!  As the Ignant article says, "Each of his sculptures is a study on the physics of how we perceive space."

Today's Mindful Monday post reminds us to find what (SOMETHING) we love and share it with the world.  And/ or to (look for and) find the beauty in the ordinary.

What do you have to share?
