If you had a heavy weekend it’s possible that your spending Monday morning having a good old think about what you just put your body through and so this is the perfect time to talk about Sylvain Dumais’ new project. Inspired by the idea of the body as a temple, he has created these mandalas – circular artistic patterns used a lot in Buddhist and Hindu art – out of some of the things with which we subject our insides, including sweets, cigarettes and pills.
Fundamentally these are ideas that have been explored before but this is elevated above many of its peers thanks to both the unusual manifestation and exquisite execution. Cigarettes never looked so beautiful.
