To Write Love on Her Arms and Electric Forest present Piece by Piece: A Pixel Mural, a community-building art installation on Main Street.
At Electric Forest 2023, The Forest Family was invited to connect with one another and spend a few mindful moments painting a selection of “pixels” that made up the Mural. Piece by piece, pixel by pixel, together in community, a beautiful tapestry was revealed.VIEW MORE INFO
Over the past few years on Main Street, To Write Love on Her Arms has hosted the Barrier Project. The Forest Family built a wall, painting onto it the words, symbols, and phrases that represented our internal barriers. At the end of the weekend, the wall was broken down piece by piece and distributed to attendees, offered as a token of our intentions for improvement, and a reminder that the walls in our lives are not permanent.
New for Electric Forest 2023, instead of breaking down a wall piece by piece, we embarked on building something together, piece by piece. TWHOLA invited us to spend some mindful moments contributing to this larger tapestry. At first, it felt like our contributions were tiny, but we put trust in the growing process. By the end of the weekend, the Forest Family built a beautiful Mural together.
