 “The Mandala Pattern” is the last session of the Ultra-Seeing series, an exploration of experimental cinema from the perspective of synesthesia and visual music, curated by Light Cone, a French organization dedicated to the diffusion and conservation of experimental cinema, and the school of Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication at UT Dallas. Organized in collaboration with SOLUNA “The Mandala Pattern” proposes a film installation, a live media performance and a screening of abstract films of quasi-psychedelic qualities.
