Title: Little Cloud Sky
Site-specific installation, Española Way, 2021
The duo behind FriendsWithYou, Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III, will unveil Little Cloud Sky, a similarly suspended installation which employs the familiar FriendsWithYou “Happy Cloud” that creates a cheerful overcast above Espanola Way. The whimsical characters are intended to transport the viewer to a joyful place amidst the busy storefronts and walkways. As the viewer catches glimpses of each Happy Cloud that passes overhead, the clouds will travel with the viewer everywhere they go.
FriendsWithYou is the art collaboration of Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III, created with the intention to bring more joy, kindness, and love to the world. The collaboration is a vehicle for the exploration of emotional healing through culture creation and art making. Each work is created with the intention of transcendence, and nurturing care for the viewer or participant. FriendsWithYou’s meaning is in its name, in that everything in the universe can and wants to be friends with you, an aide in the promotion of love, harmony & peace in our lives. Our goal is to connect and heal as much as possible through our work, to grow the love and joy in each person, creating an exponential aggregate of sharing, healing, and compassion for each other and our living planet.
