Video We the Constitution

More Perfect Union


Please wait while the video loads.


More Perfect Union spells out the preamble to the United States Constitution with forty friends in a high school gym in New York City. 2007

We the Constitution is a series of short videos designed to draw attention to the words of the United States Constitution. When asked, many people insist they know at least the preamble to the Constitution; when pressed, most can't remember past the third word. This project brings the focus back to the words themselves, and their relationship with the public life they help structure. Based on experimental projects begun while Andrew Sloat was in graduate school, the formats and techniques are inspired by the spirit of complexity and discovery that forged the original document in 1787.
