The Lightness of Hope
December marks the darkest time of the year but also marks the beginning of the return of the light. The Lightness of Hope installation focuses on this moment of change as synonymous with human nature in its darkest hour, where sometimes comes a glimmer of light giving rise to hope. One’s hope then provides the courage to endure, to act, to believe in change for the better.
The Lightness of Hope installation invites the public to take a moment to reflect on humanity’s future and to write down their hopes on tags provided by the artist, which they attach to the installation and then to light incense, carrying their hopes up into the heavens.
