Be the Change

Amy DeLaRosa's avatar Amy DeLaRosa

This art piece is based on the quote made by Mahatma Gandhi "Be the Change you wish to see in the world." This is approximately a 10' tall sculpture when completely assembled. The outside is a sphere made of paper machéd fabric strips (eye ball shaped). The iris of an eye is painted. The pupil is cut out. There is separation space between the two halves of the "eye" so you can see inside. Inside you can see a tree sculpture that represents changes that people wish to see happen in the world. Some ideas of changes are "Carved" into the bark of the tree sculpture. I mailed out survey cards asking friends, family, acquaintances, and business associates ideas about what they would like to see change in the world and received many back. These cards will also be displayed alongside this sculpture. This sculpture can be look at from all sides and the viewer will see something different from each side. This sculpture is Mixed Media.
