Life is a Revelation…be encouraged

Sometimes the simplest things move my soul. An idea will penetrate deeper than the others. I feel it, literally within my body. Usually I tear up. I can’t explain it well, but I certainly recognize when it happens.

This is one of those moments. This simple idea of a swing that produces a variety of tones…so simple, yet look at the faces of those being interviewed…they are in ecstasy.

I love it.

Be encouraged!

Live & Learn

“Every spring, an interactive installation takes over a high-traffic area in Montréal’s Quartier des spectacles and sets a collective ritual. The installation offers a fresh look at the idea of cooperation, the notion that we can achieve more together than separately.  The result is a giant instrument made of 21 musical swings; each swing in motion triggers different notes, all the swings together compose a piece, but some sounds only emerge from cooperation. The project stimulates ownership of the public space, bringing together people of all ages and backgrounds, and creating a place for playing and hanging out in the middle of the city centre.  A traveling version of the project is currently being made for these collective moments to spread around the world.”

  1. This is so cool. I love it! How better to convey cooperation through the beautiful music we can make together and visually display as a reminder to each and every one. Wow!
