Somewhere is an exploration of space and place and home.
This project was conceived of and written while driving around the country -- a rite of passage, a sort of quest, that led us from mountain tops to coastlines and everywhere in between.
It was our reconnaissance mission, our walkabout, our journey out of Seattle and into the larger world to see what we could find, what called us, what we might discover in ourselves outside of the comfort and safety of home.
Along the way we saw many places and faces in the mazes, but it was the transformation of our inner spaces that sticks.
"...if you got what we got you're always at home"
This project, as written about by Joseph Campbell in his work on The Hero's Journey, is an attempt to bring the hard won elixir from our quest, and give it away to those back at home.
We heard the call, crossed the threshold, fought our battles, seized the sword, discovered the treasure, and somehow made it back home. But our hearts are still out there... Somewhere.
"Somewhere baby a part of me, apart from me" - Bon Iver
"Somewhere over the rainbow" - Oz
"Somewhere only we know" - Keane
Maybe it's all the same place, and maybe some part of us is there all the time.
We'll see you there...
