What is your artwork about?
“Being a peace-builder in Zamboanga is not an easy task. So many negative faces that peace is being hindered. Nonetheless, with great passion and unity , will, I hope, little by little, we could be able to attain PEACE.
The picture emphasizes the different races all over the world, that share their commonality of grounds, that are “”hope,” peace,”and “love.”” Looking by the sphere of growing plants (for growing and progressing peace) as it progresses. On the other hand, the 3-headed dove which has hands as its wings to hold and support our desired world. And, lastly the vistas and the different churches on the globe’s both sides symbolizes the scenery in Zamboanga”
The crane symbolizes freedom as it flies through the puffy clouds, making its way to a better life.
Development can be achieved where we work together. “Let’s be together.”
Did your group enjoy working on this project? It is so exciting to read about the Philippini project! All students seem to enjoy exploring the Interdependence themes!
Do you have any other ideas of projects the IFC could do? Virtually wrap the globe!
The International Hexagon Project and Dream Rocket images (maybe others) , cropped into hexagons, could be virtually uploaded to cover the earth. It could expand as the content grows. It could be related to the actual size of the earth (give me some IT help here, however!! – lots of it!) Interdependence is about global collaboration. All art work would be visible. One could click on an image (as is done already in your Google, I believe) and read about the artist locate on map, and the image. So BOTH of our projects can still remain the same – but become collaborative. Perhaps we could collaborate with some other social justice arts projects also! We all have similar goals in mind! This would be a growing and more permanent testimonial of our dreams for the future – spanning projects and time.
