Finding balance isn’t easy. Creating it is even harder, especially in artwork capturing the intangible beauty of spirituality. In the wonderful series A Balancing Act, the seven chakras—a human’s energy sources of his or her non-physical body—are assembled in a true balancing act of minerals, rocks, and concrete.
To clarify, the seven charkas are typically:
- Sahasrara is the crown chakra; purple and representative of spiritual connection, bliss, and oneness.
- Ajna is the third eye chakra; violet, indigo, or deep blue and representative of wisdom, perception, and clarity.
- Vishuddha is the throat chakra; pale blue or turquoise and representative of communication, thought, and expression.
- Anahata is the heart chakra; green and representative of love, passion, and devotion.
- Manipura is the solar plexas or naval chakra; yellow and representative of power, expansiveness, and growth.
- Svadhishthana is the sacral chakra; orange and representative of sex, creativity, and enthusiasm.
- Muladhara is the root or base chakra; red and representative of stability, security, and trust.
Done up by art director and set designer Gemma Thérèse Pearce and shot by photographer Kate Anglestein, each installation demonstrates the embodiment of the charka it’s named for, both strong and delicate. The London-based duo crafts an empowering mood that weighs well on the soul and looks cool to boot.
