Shattered Sparks (2004)

A project that I developed and facilitated out of a series of conversations I had over the span of a year (2004) with members of a Jewish congregation (Oheb Shalom) in South Orange, NJ. Initially conceived as a remembrance and reflection on Kristallnacht, this project had since come to focus on the overarching theme of what do we do as individuals and as a community with the inherited materials and contents of our lives. Participants collectively assembled a form from shards of broken glass that they had written on with personal reflections of the Kabala concept of tikkun (fixing/mending/rectifying).
