Pieces of Mind

2011 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

Pieces of Mind is a project where 10,000 tiny meditating Buddha figurines will be left in public spaces for people to find. We’re constantly thinking about work, relationships, and other worries and excitements. We rarely experience the peace of mind that comes from being still. Pieces of Mind is designed to disrupt this cycle. When people find them in unexpected places, we hope they’ll stop and contemplate their mysterious find. Through this experience, they may also find peace of mind. We're giving away 10,000 pieces for free to anyone who wants to place them in public spaces for others to find. To launch this project, we're planning a massive installation in Grand Rapids during the Art Prize. 5,000 pieces will be left on the windows outside UICA. Come and get them for free. Place them in public places, photograph where you leave your pieces, submit the photos to the site, and share them with the world. The remaining 5,000 pieces will be offered for free at PIECESOFMIND.ORG.
