Kolams of South India

Below is a video I just created on the kolams (also known as rangolis), a beautiful traditional art form of South India. During my four years living in Chennai, I never grew tired of watching women transform the white rice flour or colored powder into incredible radial designs - only to sweep them away and do it again the next morning.
The blog post South Indian Kolams; Radial Symmetry of Powder goes through a bit more of the process in how I created the video. All photos, video footage, and artwork is that of my own.
