This Artist Creates Large-Scale Wonders That Make the Busiest Cities Stop for a Moment
Artist Helen Marriage creates large-scale art events so astonishing that people put aside their differences and marvel. From pyrotechnics in Salisbury to giant elephants in London, her art allows people to experience a moment together. In an area of Northern Ireland plagued by religious differences and violence, she staged an imaginative, astounding temple that 65,000 people came to see. In spite of any enmity of the past, her art allows people to inhabit a shared space as one.
