In the recent demo for the Down Under DIG, where we experimented with the DIG framework with a group of Australian educators, Penny shared her creation: a mandala.
And with that mandala, she created a moment – a moment we will long remember.
Her base was culture, her scrambler was plants. Her interest was flowers. How might flowers be used to tell stories that helped shaped culture?
It was in her exploration that she came upon mandalas as an example of art created in the world, with the world, that only existed in a moment. Where nature quickly reclaimed that brief moment of patterns. Patterns that might hold a meaning for others.
