Video Image - Peace is not a big long word
Peace Is... is a video using texts found on a September 20, 2006 search on Google for "Peace is" as a meditation on the consciousness of the crowd at this moment in time.

Peace Is... was made for the FOR LIFE AGAINST THE WAR! AGAIN! program organized by Lynne Sachs as a collective outcry in the name of peace during the war in Iraq. Filmmakers were invited to contribute a short film (3 minutes or less), echoing the original For Life Against the War! initiative forty years earlier.
