2: IncubationYou can do it. But how, but when?
Over the years this idea of a global loveproject stayed with me, but even in its simplicity it seamed to me very complex and difficult to put into form. Could a project like this also get out of control? Do we even need somebody to encourage us to be outspoken about Love? I also thought that it was a bit nuts. But still, I went to New York to make images of Times Square, I made some visuals to see how it could look like, talked to people about it, and started sketching down a plan, how this could be made real.
9/11 came and marked a turning point. We all felt then, that our world would not be the same after. Soon after 9/11 the US-Government talked about Iraq being on the axis of evil, and in the year after, the pressure on Iraq was increased. It looked like a war was on its way. Maybe It was time to call for this dormant wish of global love and peace, to remind us of the peace wish we once had as a child.
