Tetsuya Yamada’s Mandala (after Ferris Wheel) was inspired equally by Marcel Duchamp's infamous bicycle wheel as well as the original Ferris Wheel designed to rival the Eiffel Tower in Paris. For this limited edition artist’s book, Yamada captures the movements and light-patterns of bike reflectors to evoke a traditional Tibetan Mandala. A cyclical work that can be read both left-to-right (Western) and right-to-left (Japanese style), Mandala explores movement, modernism, light, color and the nature of time. Tetsuya Yamada is a sculptor and University of Minnesota associate professor in the art department.
