100 mile ART
Cambridge Centre for the Arts, Cambridge, Canada, March 1st – October 31st, 2008.
The 100mileART project in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada culminated in the creation of an icon called, The Naming of the Animals, created entirely from natural materials found within a 100 mile radius of the Cambridge Centre for the Arts. Both this icon and the method of creating it witnessed to the important role that we as human-beings play in the world: Seeing the potential for further beauty in what surrounds us. Recently our culture seems to be plagued with doubts as to the goodness of humanity’s presence, and while our position on earth can be abused terribly, our ability to beautify the world is even greater!
I was very excited to work on this project and hope it presented something worth considering, a blessing and encouragement, but most of all, a fun journey and a beautiful end.
