This is public art project employs typical methods of road signage to signal its viewers in a most unexpected way as they loan themselves to a different kind of direction.Giving new light to the term street art, these subtle public displays of awareness offer a series of connected and thought-provoking messages on industrial traffic signs which have been installed along the roadsides and immersed in the nature surrounding them as part of global public art initiative founded by the artist.

Established in 2014, Over 50 signs have been erected across Tulum, Miami, Ibiza, L.A., Black Rock City and now hitting Houston.
These conceptual and profound series of signs foster the ethos of reflection and empowerment with simple truths, words of wisdom and enlightening mantras that serve as a call to action that have been known to provoke profound moments of epiphany and inner dialogue. 

Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian and Polynesian healing art of reconciliation and forgiveness that’s been used for centuries to support, correct, restore, and maintain harmonious relationships between people, Nature and Spirit. A fundamental belief is that harmony in one’s external relationships begins by establishing harmony between one’s own body, mind and spirit.

The process begins with a prayer and repetition. One or more periods of silence are taken for reflection on the entanglement of emotions and grievances. Most problems and grievances have multiple dimensions and layers associated with them. Withholding  forgiveness is an especially evil energy that blocks you from receiving.

This mantra empowers you to untangle and release the negative ties that bind through prayer, confession, repentance, and forgiveness- of yourself and others- as it relates to the concept of Total Responsibility, which advocates that everything exists as a projection from inside the human being.Taking responsibility for everyone's actions, not only for one's own is a powerful tool proven to have a profound impact on resolution and restitution.     

Using these 4  phrases in conjunction with intention has the power to heal any relationship,  as it did mine.
