We all live under the one sky
Each of us is an individual part of a whole humanity. We are all different, and our interdependence and interconnection is our Unity. Join in, and celebrate our shared oneness.

To date, we have toured the video installation and the project to galleries, festivals, schools, and sacred sites in Europe, Asia and Australia, including Melbourne, France, Italy, Beijing, Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Budapest and Germany.
Video and Sound Installation: “Infinite Distance, Immediate Presence”
Installation in Santa Caterina chapel, NUN, Assisi, Italy
UnderOneSky project features an immersive, video and sound installation: a meditation through colour and sound. Acting as a gateway to inner perception through art, “Infinite Distance, Immediate Presence”, invites viewers to experience a sense of personal discovery and art, through the combined effects of visual and sound impressions. It has been featured on television, viewed by spiritual leaders and visited by dignitaries, including the Mayor of Assisi, and the Governor General of the Commonwealth of Australia.
“The entire Universe, according to scientific thought, originates from a single point which expands over time into a large ‘cosmic breath, and finally returns to its original starting point. During this time, we all should tune ourselves in harmony with the “Cosmic breath” to understand and to intuit sounds, signs and emotions useful to build the common good and therefore beauty.
More than an art exhibition, this work is an art pathway, removing the separation between artist and audience, and inviting us on a “common path” in search of our own origins. Within us there is “a mine of wonders,” in some ways unexplored and unexpected, and exhibition such as this help us to “dig” into the most intimate places within ourselves where we can discover answers which resonate to “ an absolute truth.” Dr Claudio Ricci PhD, Mayor of Assisi, President of Italian Heritage Sites UNESCO World Heritage
Blue Silk Prayer Ribbons : Hopes and Wishes for the Future
Traditionally, prayer flags were used to promote peace, compassion, strength and wisdom. It was believed that the winds blow the prayers and mantras into all pervading space, spreading good will and compassion around the world. So, too, our blue ribbons send their messages of hope, love and compassion across the planet.
Installation at Saint András castle, Hungary
Outside each exhibition venue, stands a tree; blue silk ribbons are tied to the branches. Adults and children alike are invited to write their personal wishes and hopes for the future onto their ribbons – creating branches of peace; on trees of hope, trees of life.
Now, more than ever, we need to remember and recover our sense of humanity, and what is important for us, for our families, our communities and our world.
