This performative art installation, part of the 100 days action, focuses on the wishes, hopes, dreams and aspirations of immigrants and Americans of the past and present uniting and amplifying them in a secular prayer action. Each person is represented by a small painting of a seed. As each seed is pinned to the gallery wall, the personal intention of the person represented is spoken out loud.
Answer the three anonymous questions here about your hope or dream for the future and please share them around. You can help make this project stronger by including your voice and those of your friends.

A time lapse video of me painting iridescent white arcs on my latest painting. This is a very soothing and meditative activity. The actual process is much slower than you see here. This has been speeded up several times for your viewing pleasure

I share a new approach I have to this painting series that I quite like. I enjoy painting these repeated marks. It’s like a mantra or prayer for me. I find it very soothing. I also love the way the marks float off of the surface of the painting. Looking forward to doing more of these!
