Ms Hauger's contemporary interpretation of a mandala, a concentric circular diagram which helps focus attention during meditation, shows an abstract representation of a healthy planet as seen from space. By meditating on the health of the planet, the artist hopes that the viewer's subconscious becomes invigorated by the fresh cool colours and the absence of heat. Ms Hauger says that our current planet is being destroyed and she hopes that her interpretation of a healthy planet will instill in the audience a desire to care for the planet and repair the damage being done.
