Stuart Chittenden is an expat Brit now living in Omaha who spent August traveling the side roads of the state in an RV to engage with Nebraskans.

Stuart set up public conversation spaces in towns on the route and talked with residents about their lives, their cultures and their stories. The project celebrates our culture and how we each contribute to it, evoking a place and its people, connecting us to Nebraskans, their stories and their lives.

Animal mythos, totems and folklore from different cultures have aided our understanding of the world.
