The Unknown

What are the Unknowns of our current collective social landscape? Surely there are countless —  enchanting and dark and fractal Unknowns — shared and unique to each experience. How can we stretch our empathic muscles to accept and embrace what is unknowable, undefined, or unsettled? Use this prompt to find the Unknown in the familiar and the familiar in the Unknown.

  1. Ask a friend, family member, acquaintance or stranger to tell you a story of a specific experience where they felt the Unknown.
  2. Ask permission to take an audio recording of them telling the story.
  3. Using the audio from that story, create a 1-2 minute video, filming visuals for the video only around your living place and up to a block around it.
  4. Share your video using the submission form at the top of this page.
