Waving is a simple but powerful gesture. Its origin is as a signal to strangers that one comes in peace and doesn’t pose a threat.We all do it – we wave at our friends, loved ones and passers-by from windows, bridges and trains. Waving is magic, creating a moment of intimacy at a distance even between strangers. Everyone’s wave is an acknowledgement of the other and a unique expression of themselves.
You are invited to take part in a massive WaveFest across Europe to send a message of solidarity across geographic, social, economic, political and cultural borders by waving at your British neighbours and beyond.
Wavelength is a life-affirming and joyful public art work created with the people of the European Union - a beacon of humanity and friendship in times of uncertainty and division across Brexit Britain and the EU.
Starting 27 August 2019 with a visit to the Irish border I will embark on an 2 months epic journey criss-crossing the European Union by trains, ferries, buses, rides, bikes and electric cars to create video portraits of European residents waving. I will send their wave messages, each a unique beacon of hope, via social media to be shared far and wide across the EU and Britain to disrupt nationalist narratives and reignite a sense of inclusion, compassion and humanity in a climate of division, hate and fear.
The final collection of waves will be launched as a short-film shown on public screens across Britain on Brexit day 31st October 2019 connecting people beyond borders, nationalities and politics in solidarity and friendship.
£5000 for screens and projections across London.
