Meeting a moment

In Whitman, time moves differently. You sit in front of porch drinking sweet tea, or maybe moonshine, and people tell you things they didnt ever say before. You see yourself, suddenly, unexpectedly, in eyes of person youve just meet. Since its first season in Whitman, Alabama and al. Com in 2016, Jennifer Crandalls ' 52-episode video project has garnered acclaim as profound reflection on American identity and human connection, using Walt Whitmans free verse and people of Alabama to sing universal Song with deeply Southern accent. Projects latest season kicks off with new episode from Magnolia Springs, Ala., Featuring Glenn Stick Mannich and new exhibition at Philadelphia Museum of Art. Exhibition Is Offered In Conjunction With Philadelphia-wide Whitman At 200: Art And Democracy And Runs Through June 2019. Walt Whitmans 200 birthday on Friday, May 31, 2019, provides important opportunity to reassess his estimable contributions to American life at time when our country is so polarized, Philadelphia project organizers write. Exhibition Is First Of Many Showings Scheduled Around World This Year, Including Encompassing Multitudes: Song Of Walt Whitman, Now On Display At University Of Virginia. Emmy-nominate Project Has Had International Attention Since Its Launch In 2016, With Coverage In News Organizations And Literary Publications In United States And Europe. Its episodes feature street dancers and farmers and grave diggers and restauranteurs and snow vendors and football players. When first publish, Song of Myself was provocative: It was written first person, projected about page points out. And first person wasnt hero. He was American, commoner, narrative for masses. It wasnt about things. No Grecian urn. No nightingale. It was about race, religion, immigration, politics. Everything were wrestling with today. Poem center around one idea: Everyone is individual-Everyone is connect-we all contain many selves. In latest video, Crandall allows herself to be pulled into spotlight for first time when, with cameras rolling, she walks into strangers ' house and into unexpected inquiry into her own life. When Stick said that he used to analyze it piqued my interest. You do often someone with those skills, if ever. I thought, let's see what this is all about, see what happen, It could be fun. Why not find out what this person who I just met few minutes ago has to say about me? Crandall reflect later. Ultimately, I like that everyone had good time that afternoon. Everyone wanted to play along. Everyone open up some. That is what I really love life and this project. People can meet each other, meet moment, and open up to each to whatever extent they want to-but they are opening up-and that always feels meaningful. And like something is happening. Crandall has created video series as Alabama Media Groups artist-in-residence, first such position in American newsroom.
