mtreesThe mission statement for this installation at [BM] this year is:
To create an interactive art installation which intends to inspire personal evolution through joy.

Specifically, the piece invites participants to declare a memory that has already happened OR a memory that has yet to happen, but to declare it in the past tense as if it has! Memories will be written on leaves and attached to trees which will contribute to the piece’s own evolution throughout the week.  memortreesSo look for this piece on the Playa and participate by sharing your memory or a memory yet to come.
