The Button of Compassion
Grandmother Rose and the Little Button
“Some time ago, when the bench design first hit paper, I shared the design of the Community Bench to the son of Brigitte Manekin. He told me that his mother had a similar idea. That like the bench symbolized building community, his mother had imagined a little gray button that symbolized the powerful idea that we all will pass – and that we all will share the grief of other’s passages, and we will all need support in various forms for this unifying reality.”
Paulo took on the design and production responsibility for the physical Button of Compassion, and for the production of the film that Brigitte wrote, Maria Broom performed in, Dariusz Skoraczewski wrote the cello score, African Moods provided the musical foundation with musical direction, film score arrangement, editing and direction from Paulo Gregory. The film was shot and DP’d by Boni Productions, and a host of other contributors supported the production.

Gutierrez Studios commissioned Paulo to produce an 8′ by 30′ sectional wall. All of the sections were hand bent out of green saplings provided by Glen Gutierrez of European Landscapes and Design, and were self-supporting from the tension created in the weaving process of each “ladder”. The Wall was installed at Pure Yoga, East, at 203 E. 86th St, in Manhattan.
