In 2011 and in 2012, I was invited to be one of six industry nominators for TED’s Ads Worth Spreading Initiative. I was paired each time with a renowned TED Speaker and assigned a category to nominate ads for. Creativity Magazine wrote about it here.
Founded in Nov’ 2008, Dsplaced is an experiment in collective storytelling. It is an exploration of human belonging – to a city, a country or even oneself. Through voluntary submissions, Dsplaced illuminates a universal palette of emotions that individuals often spend a lifetime trying to decipher. (This project coughs and putters and moves ahead – we are constantly trying to figure how we can make it more impactful and how it can continue to grow – if you have any ideas, we’d love to hear them!)
Another Letter Unsent
Founded in December 2010, Another Letter Unsent is a post-secret like project that allows anonymous senders to send letters they never sent. Unfinished proposals, incomplete apologies and untold stories.
Early 2010, I participated in a collective group story-telling experiment called Project 3Six5. Everyday for the 2010, a different individual will write an entry about their experience that day. The goal is to create a snapshot of the entire year, told from the perspective of 365 individual voices. My entry was published on January 11, 2010 – my father’s birthday. The founders hope to publish this life-stream as a book – a crowd-sourced journal of 2010.
