The Global Lives Project
Feb 20– Jun 20, 2010
Room for Big Ideas
YBCA presents the world premiere of the Global Lives Project, an innovative video installation featuring documentaries that capture 24 hours in the lives of ten people from around the world who represent the diversity of the global population. Working with acclaimed filmmakers, artists and designers, Global Lives assembles the realities of everyday life from Lebanon, Serbia, China, India, Japan, Malawi, Indonesia, Brazil, Kazakhstan and San Francisco into an installation by architectural and design visionaries of Sand Studios and FOURM design+build+educate.
Global Lives started in 2004, when founder David Evan Harris videotaped 24 hours in the life of a San Francisco cable-car driver. The project's scope has widened ever since. A nonprofit, volunteer-driven collaboration, it offers a fresh, honest way to experience the lives of ordinary people worldwide.
