Polling Place Photo Project

A retrospective of the Polling Place Photo Project, which asked American citizens to document the act of voting in all its glorious nationwide dissimilarity. Made in partnership with Winterhouse, founder of the Polling Place Photo Project. 2008

We the Constitution is a series of short videos designed to draw attention to the words of the United States Constitution. When asked, many people insist they know at least the preamble to the Constitution; when pressed, most can't remember past the third word. This project brings the focus back to the words themselves, and their relationship with the public life they help structure. Based on experimental projects begun while Andrew Sloat was in graduate school, the formats and techniques are inspired by the spirit of complexity and discovery that forged the original document in 1787.

I love the project and share it with students, clients and friends often. However I'd love to see it posted to YouTube or Vimeo so that it can be shared as an embedded video across platforms – had a quick look and couldn't find it on either. For many reasons this piece still deserves as wide as exposure as possible.
