In November 2017, the Little Stone Project took place in Bend, Oregon. The four-day art event centered around a screening of the award-winning documentary film, Little Stones, by director Sophia Kruz, that showcased four women around the world that use their art for social change. As part of the project, I designed a large-scale mosaic mural and invited the public to place a piece of tile in the background of the mosaic hoping to inspire them to be little stones in the mosaic of larger social movements and make connections to each other and the community. My inspiration for Ripple Effect came from the artists in the film. With my concept of an abstract ripple, I hope to inspire people to discover their own power to create change and connect in the world, and show how their own unique skills and talents can make continuous ripples of change within their community if they just start with a “little stone.”
