A Thousand Windows: A Long Walk in Beauty is a two part project, which gave birth to Colors In Motion®. First, these abstract landscapes became the foundation for Linda DeHart’s audiovisual masterpiece “The Human Journey,” taking the viewer on an 107min - 10 part healing experience. This is available and has been used in healthcare settings nationwide via customized digital files or DVD purchases. Secondly, this project showcases how the 1,000 watercolors and a video wall presentation of “The Human Journey” invites viewers into a meditative state as they walk along a 135 foot wall of 1,000 original paintings.
Experiencing color and beauty in abundance opens us to a state of joy, healing and inner peace. The opportunity is to transition beyond the left brain focus of the object into the right brain experience of relaxation. “A Thousand Windows: A Long Walk in Beauty,” The Human Journey” and all Colors In Motion® audio visuals offer a fine art alternative to the fast paced graphic and/or commercial video wall content presently available.
Using high-resolution scans of these 1,000 paintings, Linda DeHart developed Colors In Motion: The Human Journey with a team of designers, musicians, and producers. The collaboration continues through the design firm of Colors In Motion® with DeHart Art and artists from around the world, creating audio visual content for video walls.
The original “A Thousand Windows: A Long Walk in Beauty” is an available work which includes the 1000 original watercolors and the audio visual experience of “The Human Journey” designed for a video wall.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
