I have had an invitation to develop one of my installations for an event venue in California. Prior to building the piece for the event we will work out the logistics planning via online collaboration tools and conference calls.
I think experience in installation art and/or theatrical production is helpful.
If you know how to build - so that what we create leaves the land as it was before we arrived then you might be the one to help us. In addition to knowing how we can cost effectively build the piece, it needs to be fairly easy to disassemble. If you know about renewable energy and tech integration then I'd really love to hear from you.
About the work:
This piece combines performance art happenings, social responsibility and event marketing. Contact me for details.
Because at the heart of Cultural Fusion is the quest to create or contribute to creating a culture of peace I am interested in including text and historical information from UNESCO's Culture of Peace project as a component in the piece.
Up until now history has emphasized commemorating wars and battles - essentially shaping cultures based on internalizing national/tribal histories of conflict.. This piece will present information of real value in the context of the work, and then make that available in a more useable way for the audience. (Note to Brooks: this is where I hope you can help)
In this series- the process has brought me to the understanding that peace in the world will come by achieving peace within. Documenting and sharing the history and present of peace is a vital part of this process. While UNESCO has definitely led the way, the program remains largely obscure in the minds/hearts of most. The practical value and application of peace building needs to be presented in the context of relevancy to business and economics - as part of community renewal/development. Art, properly conceived, can provide the bridges between them.
I propose the use of art - not in a one off sort of way - but the mulitlateral context that Cultural Fusion is pioneering with "Art as Philosophy" to deliver art with purpose. Each piece is conceived to integrate the various elements shown in the diagram below, but activating them depends on SoulFood:Ingredients made available through collaborations and sponsorships.
