EMPATH – a “vast” sign of believe and trust in humanity .In difficult times with many uncertainties, we need empathy to bridge the gaps between people, connect to each other and create a sense of unity.To show the power of being connected, I have created EMPATH. This huge, interactive, public art installation makes visible and tangible what happens when the parts are connected: understanding and unity arise. The 27 meters long construction, built from connected metal pipes, was first displayed in the steppe of Almaty in Kazakhstan in July 2020. Only high from above, it reveals its true shape.
