Media is a tool that can program and reprogram the human bio-computer. Stories pattern the imagination. Language helps us think about our thinking. Cinema can open up new vistas for our minds.

This video is a new collaboration with my friend, artist and filmmaker Jason Silva, host of National Geographic's BrainGames and creator of Shots of Awe.
Jason sent me an inspiring recording he made in the park with his Iphone discussing how powerful advances in technology can extend our connections to each other making us more compassionate and kind-hearted beings.
He proposes that communication technologies act as "empathy machines", opening up new intersubjective spaces where we can all become one.
These new tools give us new "spaces of possibility" to explore, and this video is a celebration of that new space of imagination, compassion, collaboration and inspiration.

Jason and I have become good friends, kindred spirits, and share a passion for intense inspiration, for using videos to share new vistas, and when he sent me this I was so excited, I started creating visuals right away. Hope you find it inspiring.
We took three days and repurposed footage from Shots of Awe series, it was a spontaneous desire to create a campaign for POSSIBILITY and a call to action to improve the world.

Special thanks to UNEP - United Nations Environment Program for supporting the creation of this video - unep.org
