Every journey begins with a starting point. It is with the nurturing support of our home, our cocoon, that we can then excel and reach our fullest potential. From Home to Anywhere is an Art Installation that invites passers-by to step up to it and experience the cocoon for themselves, serving as a reminder that while our world is a big place, home begins with where you are.
Upon entering a nest, participants will be surrounded by birds fluttering overhead and invited to project their hopes and desires onto the birds flying above them, taking a moment to imagine how they would feel if they too could fly.
From Home to Anywhere encourages human interactions that are designed to inspire connection and to evoke the sentiment of possibility and hope. This body of work is particularly relevant today where we are displaced from our realities and caught up in our daily routines. Where our relentless pursuit of ‘success’ comes at the expense of forgotten aspirations and dreams. This Installation grounds participants in the current moment, giving them an escape from the chaos to rekindle and reimagine possibilities. The act of simply looking at these birds is a prompt for mindful reflection and presence.
Participants are encouraged to take a moment to reflect on possibilities and share their visions with the world using #fromhometoanywhere.
