Set Together is a globally collaborative project that asked participants to share in witnessing and documenting the setting sun on the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere and shortest day in the southern hemisphere - Jun. 21, 2014. The project explores the interplay between simultaneity and displacement by attempting to render collectively lived experiences into one compounded time and space. Through the simple gesture of watching a sun set, the project intuitively explores the need for connection and communal interaction.
