Questions for Humans
“When the power of love overcomes the love of power,
the world will know peace.”
— Jimi Hendrix
The Dreams Wall
One of four series of interactive murals by artist Gary Hirsch;
from his 'Questions for Humans' mural project in SE Portland, Oregon.
Each mural wall has a different theme with questions related to them;
dreams, relationships, joy, and curiosity.
The project promotes community interaction both in person and online.
In addition to his mural project, Gary also hand-paints different tiny robots
on the back of small white dominos which he leaves in cities all over the world.
So far, he's left over 31,000 of these surprise gifts for strangers to find.
People use the hashtag #botjoy to share their photos and videos
with the robots... along with their ideas, dreams, and inspiration.
Gary believes public art is important,“It rewards people that slow down.
If you slow down and notice more, I think you're going to have a richer life. And public art can help promote that.”
Visit botjoy.com to see more of Gary's robot inspiration and read more about his
on-going projects to connect and help others, he hopes will have a domino effect.
