Totemic Persona

Totemic Persona is a set of hyperkinetic videos created to show a unified, multi-ethnic, multi-generational “portrait” of our community. A “cue” of people in Kansas City so to speak. The videos will be shown on the KC Streetcar. The project first began as a public video in Los Angeles but is now being adapted to our local community.
