Ten Thousand Ripples (TTR) is a multi-platform public art project. Think sculpture, community engagement activities, art residencies, an interactive website, and a citywide culminating exhibition, all rolled into one. This Kickstarter video helped Ten Thousand Ripples complete a successful fundraising campaign for the project.
TTR is a partnership between artist Indira Johnson and Changing Worlds the lead agency in a consortium of community development, cultural and educational organizations. With 100 fiberglass emerging Buddha head sculptures designed by Johnson as inspiration, the project highlights the power of the arts to transform place, space and its use and meaning within 10 communities across the Chicago metropolitan area.
