Expanding Circles by Christine Sciulli
Documentation of projection installation, Expanding Circles, the "Special Lighting Moment" during the Education segment at the Global CItizen Concert 2013. Thank you to Michael Trainer and Hugh Evans at Global Poverty Project for their unbelievable vision to end extreme poverty and for giving me a visual voice at the festival to help their effort. Thanks to Steve Cohen, Pablo Molina and the video crew for their tireless efforts. A huge shout out to Sigur Ros and their managers at We Are Big Dipper, and Beggars XL for allowing me to use Hafsól from Hvarf/Heim during the installation (not audible on this clip). All my gratitude to Cotton On Foundation for their commitment of 40 million dollars for education initiatives in Uganda and underwriting the cost of Expanding Circles. Concept: The power of One. Many Ones. Inspiration is Contagious. It begins with you. Be part of the movement to end extreme poverty.
Visual Concept: Rippling influence from a single voice (circle) expands outward until the audience is networked through overlapping, engaged circles which then reach out into a global call to action to help end extreme poverty.
