FIGMENT is an annual participatory arts event that happens on Governors Island in New York City.
Imagine a ten-foot-high hollow sphere, twelve feet in diameter highly decorated with found objects and bright colors. A large arched entrance welcomes participants to step inside the “circle”. Inscribed on the interior walls of the globe is a short statement of intention, which will be written in 30 different languages expressing a longing of unity in diversity and peace. One of the 30 languages chosen for “Circle of Intention” was Tagalog, the translation for which was provided by TWK!!
Statement of Intentions:
“With my thoughts I change the future of our world. I imagine tolerance and admiration for my fellow inhabitants and the earth itself. I can picture how beautiful this planet is when we all help and love one another.”
