ACCUMULATION #1 & 2
On two different blizzards Bonafede goes to his rooftop to meditate within a circle of rock salt. Over the course of about two hours each, he sits in time lapse meditation, accumulating snow on his body. As the frame turns white the rock salt somewhat keeps a form around him. Tibetan Tumo meditation generates body heat so that by the end of each sitting he ends it with stripping off his clothes and making a body print in the snow. Both referencing the Vetruvian Man of DiVinci and the mandala of Eastern meditation practices Bonafede blah, blah, blah. Bonafede doesn't really know Tumo meditation, at time he just likes to see how far his body can take it and in this case, within two formally similar, geometric compositions.
