The Golden Rule
drawing in sand
This installation was inspired by the Golden Rule, the single greatest, simplest, and most important moral axiom humanity has ever invented, one which reappears in the writings of almost every culture and religion throughout history. Using the text of the Golden Rule from 13 major religions and cultures, these dictums were drawn in white sand on the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail. Throughout the month of August 2015, as the trail was walked or biked upon, the text slowly dispersed, eventually disappearing, only to re-emerge in a different location on the trail the next day.
