Ukraine has fought countless times for its Independence, a grim reminder that Ukrainians want freedom but at what cost? Everyday I watch the news hoping to see an end to this war, the poster "We Can Create Peace" is a cry and a reminder that the war continues. It asks the participant to meditate for a min, a type of prayer and construct a Dove of Peace. What will it take to end the war and have a free Ukraine: 1,000 Cranes or 1,000,000 Peace Doves.
The creative process was one of meditation, how can we get the viewer to actively think about the war? Can a poster be more than a static symbol? By asking these questions and playing with paper it made me think about paper as a material rather than something to print on.
