Ever wished you left it all behind and hit the road?
Ever wondered what it would be like to buy a clunker, sleep in it, live in it, while discovering the United States and its people?
Or discovering Asia, from Japan through China, South East Asia and all the way to India?
ooaworld currently features several projects / world regions (red pins are clickable, blue pins are yet uncharted or unpublished, yellow pins take you to a regional homepage):
- ooAmerica: ooAmerica features multimedia content produced during ooa revo’s 2011-2012 USA Road Trip including videos, photos, writing, artwork and more.
The main film / documentary project will feature interviews of the very different people I’ve met along the way, with one common question: “What’s your philosophy in life?” (Watch the trailer below or on the ooAmerica homepage)
- ooAsia: ooAsia, ooa’s 2013 Asia trip, from Japan to India, features videos, photos, writing, artwork and more. In addition to pursuing the project begun with ooAmerica, I’m also asking people along the road to “Tell me a Story.”
- There are plans for other journeys including Eurooa, ooAmerica (South), ooAfrica and ooceania!
The aims are, on paper, relatively simple: promote open exchange of ideas between people of all tides, as well as tolerance and peaceful thinking.
Another project is a series of large photo-montages, in a (crazy) attempt to capture the diversity, beauty and deep feeling of different countries and world regions, as a whole: its country, scenery, culture, and folklore. In one word: its pulp.
Readers and friends are welcome to contribute in any way. Thanks for your support!
I hope to eventually post more about the photographic approach, and, more generally speaking, the approach to these journeys.
