This community-based mosaic project provides people with a platform to unlock the personal memories that are encapsulated inside their family keepsakes. It transforms urban spaces into public art, preserving and honoring the collective memory of an entire community.
The mission of this garden of relics, or objects of sentimental value, is to help people plant, not bury, the seed of their emotions into a cement garden bed to grow stronger and higher, bringing an everlasting mosaic spring of hope and self-realization.
