Someone to Talk to creates an imagined Northern California landscape that exists beyond the shadow of Silicon Valley. Coming of age at the rise of the tech boom in San Francisco, I witnessed essential workers, artists, and the free spirits that made up my hometown start to disappear.
The city has become unrecognizable, and yet its familiarity is claustrophobic. This project lives at the intersection of two opposed convictions: San Francisco is changing, and I don't like it; San Francisco is the same, and I also don't like it.
By exploring the remnants of the 60's hippie movement and counterculture that defined my parents' generation, Someone to Talk to archives and honors the people and places that still shake to the rattling of their own tambourine.
