“I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can’t see from the center.”
– Player Piano, Kurt Vonnegut
As We Know It is a work in progress, personal documentary blending aspects of my life- real characters, settings, and actions- with my own romanticized notion the edge as a literal and metaphorical concept. The series follows my close friends and I; a group of middle class, young adults from the North East US, over the last year as we struggle to define ourselves at the edge of adolescence and adulthood. The journey has taken us to the edges of society and nature, night and day, sober calm and ecstatic excess. We press against these tangible and intangible edges, struggling to define them. They scare and entice us as we flirt with going over.
