What is 1 to Infinity?
1 to Infinity is a multimedia portrait series that will include one girl or woman, every age from a one year old all the way to infinity.
It started as a lark, a quest for infinity, but has changed because of the recent seismic changes to our political landscape. 1 to Infinity seeks alternative insights into what the United States of America stands for today and what direction the country is taking. 1 to Infinity simply begins with age.
Why is age highlighted in 1 to Infinity?
Everybody is doing it. We all age and observe others age. Age is a common denominator, and can be an indication of accomplishments, legacy, and wisdom.
Why girls and women? And no boys and men?
Imagine a world where women have an equal share of power in decision making. What would that be like? To help find out, 1 to Infinity presents this distinct collection of voices and stories.
Can anyone participate?
Yes, currently shooting in New England and New York City area . Trying to connect with participants for an eventual road trip to these “Rust Belt” states: Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa
How do you find and choose people for 1 to Infinity?
The most fun way is to show up in a town and talk to new people about the project at a coffee shop, community center, church, salon, town hall, etc. The goal is to include a variety of points of view, life experiences, and emotions.
