Balance is a token yoga term.
The practice teaches literal balance and lifestyle balance, but sometimes balance comes in the surprising marriage of unlikely phenomena. My own experience of yoga is a complex amalgam of technical yet inexplicable, minute yet boundless components.
This coupling of steely technicalities with free-form movement inspired “Taking Flight,” or planes + yoga, my graphic design series overlapping aeronautical charts with asana. The mash-up series pairs jets with handstand in the way yoga links right and left brain, thought and feeling.
“Birds of Paradise” won Scribendi’s Digital Art award and is printed in the 2013 publication.
