I am proposing to create ¨The Rope of Life¨ sculpture at UW Bothell property. The sculpture is to honor the homeless with a concept pertaining to the idea that while every strand of life may break, hope will remain. The sculpture is to be situated in the grassy area between UW1 and UW2. It´s size will be 8 ft long and 5 ft high. It will be supported by a base that will contain a plaque with its name. Each broken strand will contain a different color representing the different areas of life affected by homelessness, the center unbroken strain to represent Hope. To stay in budget, the base will be made out of cement, but the sculpture will be created out of aluminum to withstand the environment.
Life resembles a simple thing like a rope; As simple as it may be yet so complicated and intertwined. Sometimes every strand of life breaks but when hope tears, You become a broken soul. What is your Hope?
