The Pharmacy Gallery & Art Space is creating a multimedia sculptural installation in the gallery located in downtown Springfield Illinois. Thousands of white origami doves, folded by people of all ages, races, and faiths, soar over the artwork and patrons. These will be accompanied by contemplative light and a soundscape intended to carry a message of peace, resilience, and hope. The installation has three major components: the sculpture of a floating flock of more than 1,000 origami paper doves, light which moves around the space and over the sculpture simulating birds in flight, and a peaceful musical score composed specifically for the installation that features sound, cooing of doves, and even a slight fluttering of bird wings. All these elements are integrated to create an exquisite sense of tranquility and strength that opens up a creative space by offering a place of quiet reflection and peace.
If you would like to participate, you can drop by the gallery at 623 E. Adams, Spfld., Il., in order to pick up your origami dove packets.
This project is inspired by installation in the nave of the Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, an Anglican church in Trafalgar Square, London.
