We are not separate
From our environgment
we only dream that we are
A performance art piece Mind As Water allows a single participant a mindfulness exercise buided by the element of water. The participant’s progress in photographic stills becomes a social media awareness and identity experience through tagging on facebook. The expanding ripples of shared experience and traditional fundraising sponsors a water resource through the Ugandan Water Project.
The photographic element captures the meditation experience as a statement of acceptance, as well as an act of environmental activism: picturing oneself in the body of water that may be polluted shows that we are not separate from our environment; we only dream that we are.
$5500 will provide water for 4-600 individuals in Uganda. A recommended individual donation of $50 means 110 individuals will be photographed for a local gallery showing.
Sponsorhip by local businesses multiplies the international imprint.
The water tank in Uganda can be named after the sponsoring business – and the business will recieve photos from the field showing their sponsorship involvement. The marketing results for the sponsoring business ripple outward from both the gallery show and the international impact shared in social media.
Body Positive Art
Perfect for image related businesses such as salons, fitness groups, college groups or recovery groups to build rapport with clientele and present a community of acceptance.
The art making process fuels discussion and reflection both in a live group setting as well as online as each individual experiences their peer’s reactions to their photos on the gallery wall.
