"Doorways to Potential" Raises Awareness for Homeless

A few months ago, artist Andrew Baines produced this project, entitled Doorways to Potential, along Henley Beach in Australia. The performance installation and local fundraiser was developed to raise awareness for non-profit charity Common Ground Adelaide, which provides assistance and aid to homeless people in the area.

For the surreal installation, Baines placed a series of red doors in the sand. Local men, including Common Ground Adelaide chairman Alexander Downer, contributed $1,500 each to the charity in order to participate, dressing in suits and bowler hats and gathering together on the beach. At the same moment, the men stood in the open red doorways as a symbol of the many possibilities that the future holds. Baines photographed the performance and plans to produce a painting of the experience to be auctioned off at an event in May.

Check out the video below to see the performance in high-speed action.
