The Blind Portrait Experience

 
 
 

I am on a quest to gaze into the eyes of 10k people.

This quest has come to life in efforts to raise awareness on the importance of human connection.

Through a 45 second eye gazing exercise I am able to create a connection and illustrate a one line intuitive portrait of each subject.

I do this without looking at the paper, in one shot and using one line.

I call these a portrait of your essence

I have conducted blind portraits across 8 countries and countless cities. As I grow closer to 10,000 portraits a global network of individual connections are created. This network will come together upon the project completion.

How will that happen?

The first step will be a large installation displaying the 10k portraits. Thereafter, I will offer each person that has participated the opportunity to receive their portrait as a gift in exchange for a collective humanitarian deed.

This opportunity allows for the network to join forces and do something greater than us.

Pattaya, Thailand

Visit Wonderlily Island to experience The Sacred Tones alongside programmed sensory experiences throughout the weekend. 

A Flower Tea Ceremony held by Lucia Neamtu opened the gates to the island.

The following evening research chef Brian Brindza took us on a three coursed tasting journey which made up the evolution of the lotus flower. With over 150 seatings the experience was an insatiable success. 

We closed the island with a performance titled Wisperings of The Lilly. The journey was fueled with live spoken word and poetry by Guinevere Rhonwen Short of Wild Sirenda. Sit on the island and listen to her amplified voice as she rowed around the island on the Wonderlily vessel.
