The Parable of Blind Desire and Consequence

Artist: Olivia Brouwer

In The Parable of Blind Desire and Consequence, participants are asked to view an animation consisting of hundreds of abstracted watercolour paintings by looking into a pair of coin-operated binoculars. This animation is a parable, serving to confront us with a vision of our spiritual short-sightedness by depicting the destruction of our natural spaces in the service of greed. This piece intends to invite people to reflect on their role in preserving the park as a sacred space while encouraging them to separate themselves from the demands of the world, in the hopes of finding spiritual sight.
