Empathy and consideration are medicines prescribed to humans to cure the angst, trauma, mental illness or other side effects brought on by life experience. To successfully administer this medication to the masses we must first encourage humans to be reunited with their humanity. Thus, the most recent intervention: Every Human.
Every Human searches to find the common denominators between us humans. As we reflect on these common denominators as a group, we will hopefully ignite feelings of empathy and consideration not just for others, but also for our selves. In participation with the Biennial of the Americas and Understudy, we will produce a two part data driven project that is both actively motivating growth in our community as well personal healing.
Opening Reception Party: Friday, November 8, 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. featuring a public reception with the artist, complementary refreshments, and more.
