8/24/05: A constant Reminder


I work right across the Hirshorn Museum of Contemporary art and they have a big piece of art in the front of their building...hanging...well since past week they've had this writing that says "Don't be afraid" in lot of languages. If you notice there're more than a couple of Indian languages...and what's missing? you guessed it GURMUKHI!!!!! it's really inspiring...everyday i see this and i just stare at it as if to expect that i might find it on there. I don't. it's not there. For whatever reason, propoganda, politics, our own insecurities our GURMUKHI isn't there. I can go on and on on this topic...

So let's get off of it...By the way in the 60's it was "Peace" and now it's "Don't be afraid". I love this country so much and it's the best country to live in the world. ( sikhs can wear turbans here and go around this country (even in the south) and they'll feel less threatened here than they do in India. When I saw those Sikh protesters getting hosed I was reminded by the 50's and 60's in the US and how they treated blacks. That's how the indians treat sikhs. ohh yeah, we're free over there alright! we're as free as the blacks in the north and west in the US were in the 60's) But we as americans are so afraid...everything we do/buy is because of fear. hopefully that'll change one day. i went off on a tangent there sorry...

anyways here it is see for yourself

hmmmmmmmmmmmmm hmmmmmmmmmm hmmmmmm
i'll call up Smithsonian today...actually i can't today...i have a big presentation tomorrow...anyways it's a good idea. but i'm going to have to find someone to do it cuz i'm really really scared of heights. and that piece of art is 30 feet off the ground and i'm going to need a HUGE pen/brush. actually come to think of it...they won't allow that cuz it might get ripped.

the piece is 35ft by 70ft (yes, that's FEET and not inches)...

here's the link:
