Description We all hope for something. Love, success, peace, meaning, purpose…
We strive for it, and in our darkest times reach for it. Hope is no mere dream or passion, it is the fuel that keeps us moving each day. We go to work in the hope that our families remain safe, happy and healthy. We give charity in the hope it will better someone’s life. We love in the hope that we too will be so deeply loved. Hope is embedded into us. Hope is, at its source, positive connection - a feeling of being grounded with oneself or others.
In an age where a population relies so heavily on digital and social media (rather than physical contact), “connection” is a word that has been profoundly distorted and lost by the same source that strives for it. The distortion ignites fear of the other, anonymous hate, injustice and disturbed mental health. To darker and deeper states of tragedy, tyranny, war, repression, disease, death…until we are left with our only core source of self: hope. What will become of humanity when “connection” means nothing? What will we hope for then?
Reach!, an interactive installation, invites you to find grounding and be both perspectives. One side, with fading levels of hope, seeking the light in the darkness. The other, when hope has been answered, positively connected. As individuals, we can restore the true meaning of connection by not letting either side fall. And, rekindle the true meaning of shared, social connection through time, vulnerability, hope and touch. Be the positive change you want to see and reach for it!
