“Peace Lights” was born from another piece called “Drapes”, which was originally shown at the NYC Opening Ceremonies for the United Nations International Year of Light and Light-base Technologies. The following month, Drapes was shown at the New York Peace Coalition Awards Dinner where the first idea for Peace Lights was conceived. The original light images were used to re-master a cleaner version with titles and the words “Peace Lights” displayed in 55 languages. Peace Lights is becoming an increasingly recognized symbol of peace worldwide. As a video piece of art, it has been adopted by the peace organizations from 19 countries (as of early 2019) as their “International Symbols for Peace & Non-Violence”. The United Nations International Year of Light has also endorsed Peace Lights, and it has been featured increasingly around the world on 6 of 7 continents including locations such as Times Square and the United Nations and with a wide variety of, often world-renowned, artists.
