The idea for this project was to create a guerilla giveaway for Independence Day, which highlighted the indivisible aspect of unity. And, at the same time the variation of form and function within humanity.
"We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools." – Martin Luther King, Jr.
One Nation, Indivisible. was created for the Independence Day holiday in the United States. 333 individual pins were created by hand for this project, and packaged for distribution. Each pin has a different colored background, to symbolize the vast array of human beings which comprise our nation.
One Nation, Indivisible. popped up on the streets of downtown Petaluma on Sunday, July, 4, 2021 to coincide with Independence Day holiday. Five locations in high traffic areas were chosen. ______ Handmade and homemade in Petaluma, the pins were designed, created, and packaged over the period of a week.
