ALL BEINGS CONFLUENCE WORKSHOPS AND ART EXHIBIT
"All Beings Cofluence" is an interactive community
project in which an entire space is filled with sheer fabric
panels, hung closely together. Each is an image of a living
Being, representing more than 250 species thus far,
created by numerous individuals. The pieces are arranged
in such a way that no single Being is seen without seeing
others through or adjacent to it - a strong metaphor for
interdependence and self-organization of ecosystems.
Since its inception in 2010, All Beings Confluence has
grown to be 250+ panels and has been seen by more than
4,600 people in 32 locations across North America.
Anyone who wants to make a
panel is invited to do so.
