A quick, participatory project, turning despair to power through a change of scale. Textually.
During personal encounters I invited folks to choose something they’d sincerely like to give up, and to write it in the center of a little 2″x3″ handmade card (backed with a magnet) with bold text stating “GIVE UP NOW”. I made note of their words and gave them the magnet to keep.
From across the room it reads a lot like our emotions feel at times. Up close, it’s a reminder that we always have the power to reimagine ourselves… if we choose it.
