Kaleidoscope of the Universes tries to re-think for the new form of meditation through the format of a modern mandala. In Buddhism and Hinduism Mandala is a ritual of meditation where the monks draw the complex imagery of the universe as they understand it using colourful sand with high precision.

Kaleidoscope of the Universes is a to two years investigation project which starts cultivating the microorganisms on an agar mould - bacteria, fungi, and slime. The microorganisms represent the world we once thought non-existed but now prevalent in our time and they interact with each other through hunting, competition, and symbiosis - almost as brutal as the world we see through naked eyes. The microorganisms will be printed with highly symmetrical structure and incubated to create a truly living small universe on a Petri Dish.

The goal of this residency is to produce a microorganism printer connected with a brainwave device that influences the images while printing to complete the meditation cycle - where our mind affects the universe being created by the bacterium.

The whole project will become a continuous performance, which by each small printed universe taking the life of its own, helps the performer to re-exam the complex system of the biological world and the world we live in.

Pei-Ying Lin will develop this residence at LABoral in the framework of the agreement between the Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial and the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (NTMOFA) for the development of a programme of residencies for Taiwanese digital artist.
