the ‘national peace service’ is an ongoing series of activated, immersive installations. each site is connected by intention but unique in expression. the project employs methods of social art practice as an intentional inquiry into the artist’s role and responsibility in the active cultivation of a peaceful society.
as the ‘national park service’ is responsible for the development and maintenance of our national network of protected wild spaces, the purpose of the ‘national peace service’ ( nps ) is to establish a constellation of temporary and permanent public places of peace. throughout the process of creation, contemplative listening practices are utilized to gently steward forth each site’s highest expression of self.
nps imagines a decentralized, post-capitalist future vision for society; one that mirrors the effortless, symbiotic flow of nature’s zero-waste, circular systems.
