"100 Offerings For Peace: Day 23: The Weighing of the Heart"



I moved to Australia in September 2019, and what I viewed initially as a move to a country that was relatively safe from climate catastrophes quickly turned into a move to ground zero because of the bushfire crisis. I decided to use the ashes to create art as a way forward for healing and regeneration. I reference the scene of the “Weighing of the Hearts” of the Egyptian Book of the Dead, in which the dead person’s heart is weighed against a feather. This peace offering asks us, what weighs our hearts down or makes them lighter? – by Catherina Sarah Young, Visual Arts, Philippines / Sydney, Australia, Day 23 / July 28, 2020.
