The sun sets. A small audience gathers on the sidewalk. Other New Yorkers rush past, some without noticing the large projection just above their line of site. Others stop for a couple minutes to take in the spectacle. A video, over two stories tall, glows on a nearby wall.

As people. we constantly project our understanding of the world outward. Individual understandings intermix to create a greater shared reality (as we come together to form the cities we live in). Still, human knowledge cannot be separated from the human experience. Still, different realities exist within the scope of our cumulative understanding. STRAIGHT THROUGH THE WALL asked various artists what they want to say about the experience of being human. Tonight we present their views, intermixed, connected yet separate.
This work is a family collaboration between artist, mother, father and brother. I want to thank my family for their trust and participation in this work.
