Messages for Earth


High point of the 2016 edition of the Earth Festival (Festival de la Terre), Happy City Lab presented an evolving and participative work. Throughout the festival’s duration, from Friday 10th to Sunday 12th June 2016, the ‘Messages for Earth’ installation was co-created thanks to the involvement of festival-goers. The work could be read on two levels: from a wider perspective the word ‘Earth’ (Terre) made of natural materials - and from close-up, messages of hope for the planet.

The work was installed for the event’s opening, and evolved as a space for expression and exhibition as it filled up with positive messages. It was highly visible from afar and aesthetically appealing even before the addition of messages. The final and completed work was formed by all ‘Messages for Earth’ together as Sunday came to a close.
