Step Outside of your World ... Global Lives

Back in the day of email forwards, I received a very memorable one from a friend containing a selection of photos and text from the 2007 book "Hungry Planet: What the World Eats."



Likely you've received the same forward, or you've seen the photos in TIME.

I just discovered a video installation that immediately reminded me of that email forward. Check out the Global Lives Project - this video explains it all:



I was excited to learn that the Global Lives Project is on display through June 20, 2010 at the Yerba Center Garden for the Arts, located on Mission between 3rd and 4th Streets in San Francisco. Yay! Details here.

PS - if you're a Yerba Buena Center fan, then check out the 2010 Yerba Buena Gardens Summer 2010 Festival schedule for a listing of very cool (and entirely free!) events, like this May 15, 2010 performance highlighting Balinese performing arts:

The 65-performer Gamelan Sekar Jaya led by two master artists from Bali Ni Ketut Arini and I Gede Oka Artha Negara, features three large percussion orchestras: the bronze gamelan gong kebyar, the four-tone orchestra gamelan angklung, and the rare ensemble of bamboo marimbas, gamelan jegog.
