SecondSight

What do we know about the people we meet? On the surface, people seem the same. We assume their history and references are probably similar to ours. Yes, there is always something behind the curtain, a story behind the scenes. SecondSight speaks to stories of migration and change—the struggles people undertake to change their circumstances. We never know what underlies the calm surfaces of the people around us. SecondSight encourages us to look beyond the obvious, to take an active part in exploring the worlds beyond, and to remember we can never know what someone has been through.
