THE WISDOM OF TREES
Initially an official Canada 150 community art project.
Explores the common, ways to build a community rooted in the EARTH.
This project engages participants to connect with themselves and their community.
Participants will take time to reflect on their identity:
in thought and appreciation of themselves, their culture and roots and their existence.
I have chosen to base my work around the experience the organism of a wood.
The inspiration of trees to open up the emotional consciousness
and the power of nature.
Trees communicate with us. They tell the story of our nation.
They can speak about our culture.
Trees live in forests - in communities.
They are social beings.
They live together with their children, support and protect them
to grow through their wood wide web root system.
As a human being we are part of this forest.
Our identity is reflected in the diversity of our trees within our forests.
My intention is to plant seeds of
Joy, Belonging, Wisdom and Love.
They grow in silence, tuned with nature.
Let them hear their heartbeat, their own voice.
Slowly their creativity starts to blossom.
They become happier and deeper connected with each other.
I AM AN ARTIST, DESIGNER AND EDUCTOR
By listening and living close to Nature I have developed the ability to
look for and recognize
the interconnectedness of all things in life.
I have learned to follow Nature’s example in order to free up
my true nature, my true identity.
Because Art-making is something that runs deep within my nature, creativity is the one constant and reliable means of transport on my journey of self-discovery.
Inevitably many surprises are encountered along the way; de-constructions,
conflicts, evolution, growth, and those joyous
periods of unbounded positive energy and happiness.
My work embody digital participatory experiences with live events.
These creative interactions with my students, people and artists could lead to
positive transformations in our individual lives and our communities.
