- Call for artists/participants
Prayer Flag Project
For this project I'm asking for artists to make their own unique and
personal prayer flags - you may wish to represent your culture/unique
identity/wish for things like world peace, good health, a better job,
a prayer for someone else or bigger boobs and a flat screen tv - it's
your call. Work should be done on material or flexible paper or
other product that moves in the wind. The work will be outside so
may get damaged or be otherwise lost after installation. Size should
be 9x10 or smaller (anything smaller will be attached or sewn onto
The work will be documented online: http://
prayerflagproject.blogspot.com (I've temporarily put up some pictures
that I took in Tibet of traditional prayer flags). Documentation/
flag to all participants.
History: Prayer flags come from Tibetan Buddhists who for centuries
have placed these sacred flags, inscribed with symbols, prayers, and
mantras outside of their homes and places of spiritual practice.
Outside the wind activates the blessings and serves as a visual
reminder to viewers to work and pray for the welfare of others. Flags
express positive intentions and are said to bring happiness, long
life and prosperity to the flag planter and those in the area.
Traditionally prayer flags come in five colours that represent space/
water/fire/air and earth.
