Making a Text-Only Peace Pole People keep telling me I should show more process shots.
Text-Only Peace Poles
A problem with peace poles is that people who know nothing about them often find them uninteresting. I put this one in a studio during an Art-Walk and some people stopped and spent five or ten minutes looking at it, a few spent fifteen. When they learned that the text was translations of "May peace prevail on earth" in different languages they became even more interested.
Pictured here is a rough draft in plain steel that is thinner than a final one would be. I created it to flesh out the concept and see if anybody was interested. In the final version I would like to make the translations close to 5 ft long and make the pole 2 translations high, with a total of 18 languages in half inch stainless steel.
This would be a lot more expensive than most of my peace poles.
