According to Fred, various factors went into his decision to undertake this very ambitious project called World Art for A.L.S. Awareness. The increased isolation and the realization that his mobility and muscle control were about to be reduced quickly and dramatically heightened his desire to raise awareness regarding A.L.S, and most importantly- the need to make “a connection with the world,” fully knowing the lowered life expectancy caused by the Syndrome.

artMr. Siwak has created more than 60 images on his computer by moving the mouse wedged between his hands and using lateral pressure in order to control the mouse. His work highly emphasizes nature and consists mostly of birds, flowers, butterflies and other such natural wonders.

Through sheer determination (even though he must use a mouth stick to type Mr. Siwak still seeks out participants for his project on a daily basis through various online sites) Fred has managed to knock off all but a baker’s dozen countries from the list of 194 nations recognized by the World Art project.Butterfly

 

 

Those countries are:
