What is The Art of Life?

The Art of Life provides a look at what it means to be alive for people in different parts of the world. The series has been shot on a GoPro from a first-person point of view, giving viewers an intimate window into the lives of others.

Why was The Art of Life created?

It's important that we do our best to acknowledge and share the feelings of others. Seeing ourselves in context to the rest of the world is necessary as we look to create a more inclusive and supportive global community. Although we have our differences, we also share many similarities worth celebrating. We're all just doing the best we can, provided the situation, resources, and limitations at hand. But ultimately, there's more than one way to live life.

How was The Art of Life created?

My name is Neel, and I created the series after traveling for nearly three years. I hope The Art of Life can offer an un biased, un-narrated look at life for people around the world. While this series is as much about sharing different perspectives as it is capturing my personal experiences, the participants of the series are the true creators. I'd also like to thank Julio Vasquez - a brilliant brother and collaborator - for building The Art of Life's website.

What's Next?

The Art of Life is an ongoing series with hopes of collecting and mapping as many perspectives from around the world as possible. Imagine being able to peak into Alaska and then seconds later catch a glimpse of life in Myanmar, followed by life in Kenya or Chile. I can't do this alone, so I'll be looking to crowdsource more videos from people around the world. If you'd like to contribute a video, click here.
