About the Artwork

Samuel Thomas

Sam, Moving Across Cultures

My hope and purpose for creating this artwork is multi-layered. This virtual art project has the potential to reach a much larger audience than would be possible through physical person-to-person contact. I see it as a tool for bridging cultures that will hopefully change perceptions of others by putting a face on people from other cultures and broadening mutual understanding. I hope that this can make a positive impact towards universal unity (one bead at a time). Visitors will be given the opportunity to meet people, view textiles, and enjoy scenic photographs in a peaceful manner. This interaction will help create a human bond and contribute to the ultimate dream of World Peace. With all of this in context, the user will learn more about me as an artist: my work, creations and artistic vision.
