We Are One is a combination of several different international buildings: the White House, part of the Taj Mahal, old buildings from Morocco, a hospital in the Congo, and an apartment building from the Middle East. It is about embracing the differences and similarities in all of us--peace. In the buildings the cultures are mixed. For instance, the Oval Office in the White House is draped in miniature Persian rugs and Islamic prayer rugs, with Christmas lights, a crystal ball, and effigies from different religions. There are several videos, containing boxing cartoons, interracial couples, and video clips from Bollywood and dancing from around the world. The word “together’ is written in graffiti in several different languages.
