More about the project:

We are creating a project titled "360° - We and Everybody," which will be created and shown at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.

We would like you, your family and your friends to participate in creating this artwork, bringing us closer together.
“360° - We and Everybody” is a project that encourages world citizens to think about the challenges, the efforts, the splendor and the richness in the diversity that makes our societies so unique, whil common dialogues like “The Greenhouse Effect” bind us.  Therefore, we are asking people to work collectively in an artistic effort that furthers our togetherness and willingness to unite.
Participants of “360° - We and Everybody” are invited to take a piece of cloth cut to measure about 5 x 40 cm (2"x16"), write their name and location on it and send it to one of provided address.
We will then work together with students and anyone wishing to join us in tying the strips together, end to end, while wrapping it around a ball containing a special message, as if creating a huge ball of yarn. When completed, the big ball will hang freely from the ceiling like our mother earth rotates in space.

Please, pass this call to your friends, too. Thank You!
