PEACE CORPS: KALEIDOSCOPE
The Peace Corps kaleidoscope is a field of triangular pillars portraying memories of volunteers assisting in different parts of the world. The images are conveyed in the entire extent of the pillars, making the photo assemblage perceptible from perspective angles. Pillars are shaped triangularly allowing for different images to be engraved in each face, therefore the perception of the photo assemblages are in constant change like a kaleidoscope when walking through them. The site celebrates different moments of the Peace Corps volunteers from eight different regions of the world and invites people to meander through the pillars or sit on the central lawn and experience a collection of memories.
The Peace Corps mission is executed through a collaborative work of more than 10,000 volunteers. Pillars represent individuals and they portray a piece of a bigger photo assemblage which depicts the importance of collaboration for a larger mission.
