“FORGIVENESS” was the second part of a healing trilogy of participatory art installations designed for raising consciousness. Over 2000 people visited the installation and more than 400 Forgiveness Notes were written and left in the tepee. Keith would like to thank everybody who participated in the project. Some of the comments about the installation are shown below.
“Grown men were coming out of the tepee weeping. That is what real art does to people.”
