Not only glancing into a kaleidoscope, but looking into it properly. Not only observing but being drawn into the interplay of mirrors, lights and colours. Not staring into a closed system, but being open to reflections of nature, the surroundings and other people.
The word kaleidoscope comes from the Greek and means “to see beautiful shapes”. Kaleidoscopes have meditative and therapeutic potential. Observing the constantly changing images results in calm and stillness, stimulates imagination, and inspires self-reflection. Each picture is as unique and as fleeting as a snowflake. The smallest impact is all it takes to bring about a new composition and light, shape and colour.
