here is you are here

two women with memorable first names are about to embark on the next leg of their documentary project - the you are here project. they're driving across the country, recording interviews and snapping photos, documenting the lives and communities of different people. their subjects? well here's the especially cool part. everyone they talk to then recommends someone else for them to interview. the catch is - the next interviewee must live west of the person suggesting her/him, and preferably within one day's drive. the project started with an artist friend in brooklyn, who sent them on to a family in pennsylvania, and so on.

story by story, blue and flynn hope to cross the country, starting in brooklyn and ending somewhere in spitting distance of the pacific ocean.
so far they've made it about a third of the way across the country, but are about to spend two weeks driving, collecting stories and blogging all about the experience. keep track of their progress, and maybe you'll even get to hear all about it. the adventure lasts june 25th - july 8th.
