Terra Mandala, 2001
Rubber, plastic
30' in diameter

Made from a poured rubber surface most commonly used for city playgrounds, this installation serves as a performance space or a stage for breakdancing. The form is based on a Buddhist mandala -- a circular floor pattern used to establish a sacred space for meditation. Biggers' work often references hip-hop culture, Eastern spiritualism and urban culture.
