Cultural Fusion - Art as Philosophy, asks Google, "Are you talking to us?"

Recently when speaking with Washington decision makers, Google's statements (unintentionally) framed the relevance of "Cultural Fusion - art as philosophy" that will be moving forward with "Hotel Infinity phase1" (i will post an update on this in the forum for comment) to officially launch on the UNInternational Day of Peace Sept. 21, 2007. This will premier the first step(s) in the artwork to benefit Foot Steps for Life, the start of my quest to automate global social responsibility as a CRM Strategy.

Using art to give voice to their rage, humiliation, and desire for revenge so that peace in reality can be found as part of the recovery process.
