Hope and Connection
by Zac Abney
The foundation of any community is the connection to each other and the environment in which we live.
This interactive mural asks the viewer to place themselves within the art work through the use of silhouetted figures as place holders.
Once embedded within the image, the participant is both ingrained into the city (Kamloops) as is illustrated through the topographic map on the left side, while also connected to community through the use of slightly blurred letters along the right side.
Firmly embedded in the middle, the “Family” of participants are looking toward the sunrise, seeking hope and possibility in the future that is realised through the grounding within the community they support.
