My second installation is a mandala drawn under the apple tree in my garden. I planted this tree a few years ago as a reminder to myself of Shakespeare's words in King Lear: "Ripeness is all." So I felt it was an appropriate place for a mandala.
This is one installation artwork that I created for my art class. I placed two Ganesha figures on some rocks in my garden after cleaning the rock and decorating it with colored powders.
I have enrolled in an Art class through Coursera. Our first assignment is to introduce ourselves and show the class something we have created. I just started experimenting with block printing, so I decided to show the class the first three linocuts I made. Here they are:
We have been asked to design t-shirts that represent our current "Design: Artifacts in Society" course. There will be a tournament, and one t-shirt will be chosen to become a keepsake of this course and it will be made available for purchase. These are my designs and I have included pictures of how they will look on a t-shirt. It is on the slideshow below.

In the Irrational Behavior class I am taking through Coursera, a student named James Coombes came up with a brilliant idea: using the concepts in Behavioral Economics to explain why the chicken crossed the road. He floated the idea on a discussion board and other students pitched in, with their own take on how the concepts in the class could be used to explain the chicken's strange behavior.
I came upon this discussion by accident, quite late in the day, and was inspired to create the following visual rendition of what the class brainstormed.
