Photographer Captures the Beautifully Kaleidoscopic Ceilings of Mosques #ArtTuesday

Artist Mehrdad captures the geometric beauty of mosques, Via MyModernMet

Photographer Mehrdad (aka @m1rasoulifard) tours the mesmerizing mosques of Iran and looks upward for inspiration. As he’s wandering through both ancient and iconic mosques in his country, the artist mainly focuses on the designs that evoke an impressive amount of history. Since the mosque ceilings are his main muse, Mehrdad often finds sweeping mosaics and incredibly intricate works of geometry when he points his lens to the sky. These designs are not only incredibly vibrant and detailed, they also contain thought-provoking symbolism that breathes life into the mosques’ architecture.

What’s perhaps most interesting is that, without context, one may not realize that Mehrdad’s photographs zero in on ceilings. On their own, these incredible snapshots look like elaborate mandalas and some even appear as though they’re the inside of a kaleidoscope.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
