AK Artist Residency NYC, Governors Island Sept 2016

This September I spent the month in NYC. I participated in an Artist Residency. I created a Public art project titled ‘ONENESS’ Lost Sock Project. It was a collaborative project to celebrate our diversity and to create connections. Here are some photos that capture the experience.
