Biffybeans Transformational Mandala Art Video 2010



Sometime last year, my friend Mike Deaton made a suggestion that I create a video of my art work to be projected on the wall behind the musicians performing in the jam space (known as"The Boilerhouse") at our friend Jim Donovan's Summer Rhythm Renewal Retreat.

The video I created ran for about 40 minutes and it brought tears to my eyes to see my work projected so large and to be enjoyed by so many. Since that time, Mike & I have discussed projecting my work on sides of buildings... in large public spaces.... My mind is still churning with the possibilities...

The video above is a shortened version of what I had put together for the retreat last summer. Once again, Jim Donovan has graciously permitted me to use music from his CD "Pulse." (One of my all-time favorites!) Visit Jim on the web at jimdonovandrums.com

PS - This is a link to a short clip from it being projected in the Boilerhouse. I shot the video at the end of the night after having played djembe for two of the funkiest hours ever!

This is an awesome video, Stephanie! I watched it twice. Your designs and colors are stunning. Paired with that music, I was in a trance. :)

Simply, beautifully, astounding! Jim Donovan's music goes well with your art. ("Art" seems like an inadequate word here, but I cannot think of one that fits properly.) You inspire me, Stephanie! Thank you.

Hi Stephanie, I commented on this post yesterday but don't see it today.
Basically what I said was,
"Awesome video! Stunning colors and designs."

I hope it goes through this time around. :)

Erin - much love to you! I am so glad you enjoyed the video. Jim's Pulse CD has been inspiring me for years... I've drummed to it, danced to it, created tons of art, even taken it with me when I've gone for a massage. There are just some pieces of music that let you get totally lost within the moment. PS - your comments did come through. I have them set to be moderated to avoid spam. :o) Thank again!
