Kinetic Intentions set in motion aspirations for personal and environmental balance.
This “room” among trees, made of 150 six-foot long twirling strands adorned with mirrors, bells, recycled found washers, community created mini-mahogany mobiles and intention ribbons; all which came to life in the wind.
Central to this art in motion environmental public art installation were hundreds of locally collected recycled Mahogany seed pods.
The nearly 500 mini-mahogany mobiles were created by the community in county-wide art happenings.
Threatened in their native habitat due to over harvesting for furniture, and land clearing for new construction, Mahogany seed pods symbolize the delicate balance between us and our environment.
Inspired by the multicultural “Wishing Trees” tradition, attendees wrote their intentions for individual and environmental balance onto ribbons and added them to the kinetic sculpture.
As hundreds of ribbons were attached to the kinetic dangling scrim between trees, collective consciousness, the movement toward balance, was set in motion. The wind, Mother Nature’s breath, activated and energized community intentions for balance.
The second in my series of temporary, site specific community tree sculptures, Kinetic Intentions mobilizes us to set our intentions for balance, re-imagine and breathe new life into everyday objects, and activate a small city park.
Kinetic Intentions came to life in the park just east of Boynton Beach Civic Center for two days.
