Weekly Photo Challenge: One Love

7 Comments

Fly me up to where you are

one love

In setting the weekly photo challenge with the theme of one love, Anne quotes the urban dictionary definition of

One love refers to the universal love and respect expressed by all people for all people, regardless of race, creed, or color

I also quite like Paula’s take on the theme of

one that perpetuates the cycle of life and makes one feel connected with the universe

This work by artist Tiffany Singh is currently installed in Frank Kitts Park as part of the New Zealand Festival.  Singh gathered 15,000 flags from children aged 8 – 12 years old in New Zealand’s three major cities. The children attend decile one and two schools (which means they live in the poorest 20% of communities).

From the artists description – “the project asked children to tap their creativity in order to process their concerns, hopes, dreams and ideas.  It offers a platform where their voices can be expressed as a collective artwork”

  1. This is a superb shot, Sonya. I think that the idea of including children creatively was a great one especially if someone relevant will listen to their concerns and hopes. And thank you very much for the mention. I am flattered.

  2. children have such a great voice

  6. Lovely shot! I love the work that Tiffany Singh does. I saw her ‘White Night’ exhibition in Auckland on Saturday. It’s made up of hundreds of paper lanterns hanging in the atrium. Visitors were invited to make a wish or offer a blessing on a card, and pin it to the ribbons hanging from the lanterns. It looked amazing, and really got people’s interest.
