"All One Many Names"- ink on plastic, 1600 tiles. There are over 5,000 portraits featured in this piece. The portraits are line drawings of people from all over the world, all walks of life. They are inspired by my early love of National Geographic magazines/documentaries, where I had my first glimpses of the experience that we are all more similar than different. This project was initiated by a powerful dream I had in my early 20's, a dream of all of humanity receiving a great blessing and rising together. Each tile is about one and a half inches by two inches. The tiles will can be attached to a wall directly and are intended to be shown in a 8" x 10" grid.
Each tile has the words " May all beings enjoy happiness and the root of happiness. May a being be free from suffering and the root of suffering" This was my mantra, my prayer throughout the project.
