HOPE FOR THE PLANET

I had a recurring dream to create an ethereal, winged sculpture to offer a haven for hope. This dream has become a journey of global connection and community.

I am collecting wishes for the Earth and incorporating them into the inner section of my aerial sculpture.

EXPERIENCE THE SCULPTURE
When one stands underneath and looks up into the wing-like filters, lifting their chest and opening their heart, there is an involuntary intake of breath that cleanses. Walk into your world with a shifted perspective and pass it on.

Believe in the power of positivity & join the movement!

  • I have made a downloadable PDF for anyone who wants to fill out a wish. Each page contains nine Wish Papers. You may fill out only one or collect wishes from friends and family. You may print out multiple pages if you want to collect wishes for this project.

wishes PDF
  • When filling out your paper, I ask for your first name, the age you feel, and your wish.

  • You may stop by my studio to complete your Wish Paper or drop off the finished pages. You can also mail them to my studio:

    • Kate Wilson Fine Art
      Suite 711A
      Hope Artiste Village
      1005 Main Street
      Pawtucket, Rhode Island 02860

  • I will add your wish for the planet to my installation. May the positive energy toward our world elicit global healing.

    SYMBOLISM

  • My sculpture measures about eight feet in all directions. The number eight symbolizes infinity, rebirth, and abundance. Each Wish Paper is rolled into the shape of an unfurling seedling, revealing a name or age but concealing the wish. The handwriting unique to the individual shows, cueing the concept of our individuality blending in a common mission-spiraling up together for hope.

  • The Wish Papers measure three inches by three and a half inches. The number three represents all: the beginning, middle, and end, or the Earth, waters, and beyond, as well as the body, mind, and spirit. The number three and a half symbolizes things still in progress, unfinished. I have suspended the wishes in an abstracted double helix to represent DNA, common to all life on Earth.

  • I created the outer haven, I love You, with coffee filters to symbolize community and connection. When you ask someone to have coffee with you, you are saying I want to spend time together connecting as equals, sharing an experience.

  • These nests of coffee filters are grouped in twos and nines. The number two is associated with harmony, balance, partnership, and love. The number nine symbolizes universal love, spiritual awakening, enlightenment, and humanitarianism.

  • I used ferrous metal and magnets to represent the pull of Earth’s gravity. Whether you are on the left or right politically, we are all held firmly to the same planet.

 HOPE FOR THE PLANET in progress...

HOPE FOR THE PLANET

She lives with me in my studio, for the time being, her soft feathery creaminess, a quiet company while I work below. I intend for her forever home to be somewhere grand, where all humans can gaze through her downy shelter and contemplate a world where their wishes come true.

What is YOUR wish?
