Nanomandala is an interactive installation created in collaboration by Victoria Vesna, media artist and Professor at the department of Design of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and James Gimzewski, Professor of Chemistry at the UCLA. There are several pictures and videos of the installation available on their website.

The installation consists of a projected video onto an eight feet wide circle of sand, evolving in scale from the molecular structure of a single grain of sand and back again to the mandala. These images were achieved with a scanning electron microscope (SEM). 

This work was inspired by ancient Eastern traditions and aims to illustrate how cultures make use of bottom-up building practices to create a complex picture of the world from extremely different prespectives.
