“No War Peace Theater” is a small, public pavilion making a space for fostering peace.

It makes a space inside a black and white cube, symbol of people’s differences and similarities.

A split, a cleave of light, through top and front signifies universal space between people’s difference as well as that collective space that connects and conjoins.

The thin cleave looks up and in and across. Up to sky space. In to interior space. Out to people.

This cleave of light speaks to the world and crises of three ecologies: the ecology of People to Earth, People to Sky, and People to People.

Cleave of light stands for the reality and paradox of human nature. We need both separation as well as unity. We are the same because we are different.

“No War Peace Theater” is a symbolic and practical container, a vessel for holding and carrying forward our paradoxical and perpetual search for peace in endless war.

By day ­­— a quiet space of calm, by night ­­— a space for public peace programmes.

In day time, it is a dark, empty space with a slot of light coming
in and a long view looking out.

At night is a space, a volume, which resonates interior, inner
light, a glow and sound from people’s programmes and voices.

There are two volumes: a cube holding and carrying energy pressing out: and the volume of people’s work and actions, soft and loud, advocating and working towards some better kinds of peace ­­— inside and out.
