Inspired by the Humans of New York project, 7th grade students from High Tech High Middle School, captured over 200 portraits and interviews with San Diegans centered on investigating the idea of home. During the course of the school term, students engaged in a lesson around identity, community and belonging. Armed with new insight and with practiced skills in photography, students went out into the neighborhoods of San Diego to photograph and interview people. Participants ranged in age, gender, ethnicity, and were asked a series of questions including What does home mean to you? And, How has your home shaped who you are? This installation is a collective gallery of the responses, and of memories and stories on the subject of home, in all its many forms. It celebrates diversity and illustrates what we all share in common: our home, San Diego.
