Day 155: June 4
In The Year of Living Honestly
In The Quarter of: Education
In The Month of: Exploration
Moving East today we explore art and environment and what happens when the good of the environment becomes center stage with artistic display. Brazilian Artist Eduardo Srur makes a statement he calls interventions and uses the city as his canvas to highlight political justice and elevate the importance of art in the world by bringing it to the people. He lives and works in Sao Paulo, though has created intervention art in a variety of cities of the world. This display speaks to the efforts of recycling and of making something new out of something old.
Srur transforms the unused urban spaces to create a labyrinth of recycled materials in Sao Paulo. He has taken this intervention to all the local parks in the city to let environmental awareness rise to confront the public with the garbage it generates. Over 100 tons of recycled material was fashioned into 400 blocks to form this 400 square meter labyrinth. Scheduled walks allowed residents to experience the labyrinth and the message in the areas and cities the labyrinth traveled to. This is an important reminder in the program of our year to find the honest abilities, noting our truthful ecological responsibilities and our carbon footprint in the path we weave as a member of Planet Earth.
On this 155th day…
Explore your own relationship with the rubbish created in one day, in the trail of trash left behind, how far would your labyrinth extend in a day, week or month?
Interactive Map Progress
A great Interactive experience this month will include a google map to track where we have been and what labyrinths you submit. Lets see if we can make a labyrinth pathway out of the month of travels based on the locations offered. We began in Portland, Oregon…. Click here to watch the progress grow this month!
Our exploration this month is to discover the World Wide Wow in the unique and innovative labyrinth designs world wide that inspire us to move beyond the everyday and give us a larger labyrinthic look at what our path can truly provide. From the idea of living outside your box to simply doing something different everyday, allow this journey of June to educate you and your relationship to life with the labyrinth. We’e taking a global course in Labyrinthing!
- Get Global….Explore the World
Investigate the world wonders of labyrinth design that are unique and different. From the permanent structures that are built to the canvas portable unique designs or the finger labyrinths that inspire a different walk, share the images at the 365 Experience on the TLS website and provide some detail and share your thoughts. Note how these designs are outside the box of traditional design and how they might take us outside the design we’ve been living in. They can be quite diverse or small simple adjustments that make it different too.
- Act Local…. Bring the World to you
Let your walks, programs, designs, creations and simple enthusiasm be inspired by what the world offers us with fresh ways to create new experiences in the 30 days of this month. If it is doing something different each day, walking a new labyrinth, designing, researching or some new way to share, do it then share it with us!
