About the Project
The Global Lives Project is avideo library of life experience, designed to cultivate empathy across cultures supported by the National Endowment for the Arts. Curating an ever-expanding collection of films that faithfully capture 24 continuous hours in the lives of individuals from around the world, the videos were first showcased as a video installation in a 360-dome exhibition space. The goal of the overall project is to combine all the segments from around the world to foster empathy and cross-cultural understanding. I participated in the project for the segment shot in Kazakhstan about a young girl whose family owned an orphanage in the industrial town, Vannovka.
