‘The Unbound’ Faith XLVII new mural in San Francisco 2018-07-27

‘The Unbound’ Faith XLVII new mural in San Francisco

Faith XLVII with the support of Brian Greif and the @uchastingslaw created ‘The Unbound’ in San Francisco. The Unbound thematic was born from her personal feelings of frustration regarding the social- political context of today.Faith47 explains her thoughts : ”Watching the disharmony, the dismantling of human rights and the continuous struggle for equality is exhausting.
The only way I can keep going is if I can transform some of this into my work.”

”So the work stems from a place of discontent and begs the question of what direction are we headed in? I spent time researching the symbolism of the white flag as well as the history of the Peace Manifesto. Peace Manifesto’s have taken many forms, with voices spanning from the scientist protesting the use of the atom bomb, to greenpeace and worker parties to womans rights associations.”

”We formulated our own Manifesto, keeping the perspective as inclusive as possible.  For me, the main objective is empathy.”

The location of the mural is in the heart of the tenderloin. This is a very desperate corner of San Fransisco with meth being dealt openly and heroine being injected right there on the pavements. Spending the week there was deeply saddening and further entrenched the significance of how much work needs to be done. There is a dire need for the funding of social series and mental health care in the USA. For humanitarianism of all forms. So first, we need to open the heart, and then we need to make social changes so that people have support the planet is sustainable.

It is not that I believe in an idealistic future, on the contrary I am at times overwhelmed with cynicism. But despite this, I do think that we have to push for the betterment of the future, for the sheer love of the planet and for each other.
The civil liberties that we have, were fought for and we need to be vigilant in this time to protect them.

The poetic versus beneath each flag are adapted from ‘The Cosmic Doctrine’ by Dion Fortune. The words speak of an existential search, for essentially, this is the root of our suffering and confusion.

The Manifesto:

THE UNBOUND

We raise a White Flag as an unyielding symbolic and actual call for ceasefire.

We align as fellow citizens of the sacred Earth.

We understand that the wellbeing of humankind is deeply linked to the longevity of the planet.

We encourage practical, intelligent actions towards protecting earth with the various organisms, animals, plants and eco-systems that it sustains.

We see all humans as equal, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, culture, race or creed.

We believe that sustenance, water, healthcare, shelter and education are basic human rights.

We aim to engage in economic systems that value the wellbeing of people over profit.
We do not view war and violence as solutions.

Rather we urge governments to maintain peace between differing ideologies through negotiation.

We strive for the use of technology to aid us in finding solutions to our problems by working in conjunction with, not against, natural systems.

We realize that we exist in a realm of chaos and irony, thus we embrace the perseverance and poetic optimism necessary to achieve these goals .
