Stimulated by the search for perfection in the electronics industry, Ulian began composing ornate mandalas from pieces of circuitry. “I wanted to show what has been hidden from the eyes of the consumer, representing electronic circuits as extraordinary objects where the perfection of the design can becomes almost something ethereal. The shapes and colors of the single components intrigued me for pure aesthetic reasons with the consequent loss of the actual functionality of the component itself,” says Ulian.

While the pieces do not accomplish a physical or computational  task, they lay bare the the machinery of our manmade universe much like an anatomical dissection. He takes the strictly physical and rearranges their shapes and positions to examine the way our minds operate by abstracting the technical into the fanciful.
