Humans of MY World

Photo by William Moore

Sharing the images and stories behind the United Nations Millennium Campaign

Humans of MY World is a photo-narrative project that highlights personal stories from participants in the MY World Global Survey.  Photographer William Moore, a Raleigh native, and Saige Martin traveled to 15 countries across 5 continents to photograph and interview people on the street about the experiences and philosophies that have shaped them most. MY World is the largest survey in history. There are sixteen millennium goals. The survey aggregates data from more than five million people who have voted for the issues they most want to see on the global agenda--better healthcare, a good education, better job opportunities, etc. 

The survey was the first time most people had ever been asked how to solve the problems in their communities, or what they hoped the future would hold. The photographs connect storytelling and statistics, big data calculation and individual wisdom, revealing the impact art can have on global development. The exhibition combines street photography, demographic information and interview texts. The exhibition will be on view through January 10.

Picture Yourself Inside the Inflatable

By CAM Raleigh | June 30, 2011


There is something so fun and magical about our inflated sculpture by Dan Steinhilber.  It draws a smile from everyone young and old.  People will sit down inside it, let the breeze blow through the peep hole, feel the whoosh of air through the fridge door, and sometimes just sprawl out on its floor.  We've had visitors hang out in the piece for nearly a half hour, just enjoying their surroundings or watching others' expressions of delight as they enter for the first time.  

Our gallery attendants have noticed that visitors sure like to take pictures of themselves and their family/friends while inside the sculpture.  The light is fantastic, and the background unlike any other.  A young woman who recently visited said "This must be what the inside of Pollock's and Warhol's minds look like". 

Our gallery attendant, Carl, had the great idea to launch a flickr group to capture photos that our visitors have taken inside of the Dan Steinhilber inflated sculpture. So that's what we did!

We will choose visitor photos periodically through the end of the exhibition to feature on our blog.  Join our group today and show us your picture Inside the Inflatable.  

If you haven't had a chance to see it yet, Dan Steinhilber's exhibition, "Hold On, Loosely", will be up through August 22.  Come by and experience the magic before it goes away. 

Our 1st First Friday!

By admincam1 | May 10, 2011

We had so much fun during our first First Friday.  We had over 900 visitors in only two and a half hours!  The critical mass of CAM Raleigh t-shirted bike riders showed up around 8:00 PM, a definite highlight for the evening.
