Crane City: Pathway To Peace
Pathway to Peace is the ideal visual experience of Crane City. This community project represents the seemingly small efforts which capitalize on greater changes happening around us. More hands and light work is not just an expression-it's the benefit of having a harmonious community. Isn't that we strive for?
Pathway to Peace will intentionally be made with a minimum of 10,000 cranes, 3 pathways and 25-50 feet length pathways. This project is a labor of love for all I have learned and gained from living in a city that never stays the same.
We can change our future for the better through art expressions, inner reflection, quality education and always peace.
Bringing Culture to the PNW one crane at a time. Honoring Seattle's "Deep Freeze" with Environmentally Conscious Peace Origami Installation and Notoriety Community Building.
The intention of Crane City is to create an eco-friendly and socially conscious installation. We collaboratively explore how we show up in our communities using mindfulness techniques (such as origami) and raise simple awareness to who want to be in our communities and how to go about diving into unknown territories. We strengthen our thoughts in safe and agreeable spaces while plunging into light political stigmas during Crane City Workshops. The intention is to get people out of the habit that the world around is just simply happening and we have no control over it-while partially true- we can always add peace. We can create positive change with our thoughts, words and actions. This is Crane City's intention.
Crane City Launch
Crane City was merited the name in March 2019 as a workshop event. The vision to build a walk-through installation became a dream come true when I received much support from University Heights Center & won 2 grants and the McKay Grant Award from Fremont Arts Council collective. Crane City's first walk-through & installment was placed at Gas Works Park for 2019 Fremont Solstice Parade in Seattle, WA.
The idea was to build an interactive art piece that people could submerge themselves in through participation and walking though the experience. The hope and challenge is to break the cycle of "The Seattle Freeze" by creating spaces where people are looking out for everyone and intentionally creating Peace, & Harmony amongst mankind in all of their communities.
