Pakistan

What is the color of our humanity? What is the color of peace?  During the past decade on the Internet, I’ve realized that color is an experience that we all share regardless of politics, religion, geography, age, etc. Over 6 billion people are on the planet – and we are all immersed in a color soaked world.

 As an American, I feel that we have not made sufficient efforts to reach out to the Muslim world. Therefore, I volunteered to conduct color workshops in Pakistan and use color as the basis for interaction and hopefully building some bridges.

During February and March, 2009, I served as a visiting professor in the School of Visual Arts at Beaconhouse National University in Lahore, Pakistan. These pages reflect many of the colorful experiences and the warmth of the wonderful people of Pakistan.
