A week from today on October 9, Yoko Ono will unveil the Imagine Peace Tower in Reykjavik, Iceland. The tower, which is a giant beam of light emanating from a wishing well, will bear the words “imagine peace” in 24 languages.
Ono has been collecting wishes for peace–of which she now has 495,000–which will be buried in capsules around the tower, topped by a tree. “Eventually, it will be like a forest,” she says.
The unveiling is Yoko’s gift to her late husband John Lennon, who would have celebrated his 67th birthday next week.
…Say what you will about Miss Ono, but we dig her pacifist vibes. Anyone feel like hopping a plane to Rejkjavik?
