ET Projects brings artists together to design imaginative art experiences for the public. We invite people to dissolve differences and collaborate in participatory social sculptures, building a capacity for empathy and creating pathways for joyful healing with each other and our planet along the way.
OUR WORK shines a light on humanity’s fragile relationship with nature by engineering events for collective creativity that inspire dialog, raise consciousness and invite individuals to transcend boundaries as a global community.
It’s one thing to observe art, and quite another to be a part of it. Look Up brought together a group of retirees to create a vibrant, new view of their own community. Each resident of Mt. San Antonio Gardens’ retirement community spun umbrellas adorned with bright, botanical designs in tandem. From above, you can see how each person is connected to one another as their umbrellas spin, forming a kaleidoscopic vision of their own home.
Look Up offered optimism, and a respite from isolation for the members of Mt. San Antonio Gardens.
Tipping Point was set on an island already impacted by climate change; Catalina, California. The project asked volunteers to trace areas of conversation commonly avoided and in so doing, revealed overlapping pathways- our connectedness. The existential threat of environmental change might not punctuate our day-to-day conversations, yet it’s ever present shadow is altered only by collective action.
In fighting silence, Tipping Point hopes to help us fight these threats united and with fun.
Shoreline Project illuminated the living, breathing ecosystem of Laguna’s Main Beach with the support and participation of the local community. Over one thousand volunteers came together, holding illuminated umbrellas moving in concert with the contour of the seashore.
As the sunset’s orange sky gave way to darkness, thousands of onlookers caught a glimpse of the magic unfolding on the sand below as the participants became a concentric body moving in harmony with each other and nature.
This event launched the first of several Shoreline Projects. Our vision is to circle the Pacific Ocean and appreciate the changing role of the Oceans: from formidable boundary to fragile resource.
