Down/the Line

Down/the Line is a web journal, documenting the day to day between surf, travel and life in a van. The idea is to share the spirit of far away lands and inspire people to get out there.

THIS IS US AND OUR GREAT AMERICAN JOURNEY

My name is Ingrid Silva, I am a photographer/videographer from Peru. My partner is Mathieu Liot, musician and artist from New York. We are both surfers, artists, and highly aware of the need for change in human consciousness.

We are planning a journey across USA, from coast to coast first. And continuing across the Americas, through the Panamercian highway all the way South to the tip of Chile.

Our goal is to document our journey through photography, illustrations, video and audio recording. We’d like to explore the way others live and share experiences with people we meet along the way. Make music, record traditional songs with locals and integrate sounds from all over America.  At the same time create awareness of our environmental impact on climate change, and how eating less meat, recycling, using your own re-usable shopping bags as well as your own re-usable water container instead of buying it every time, are a few individual, easy options that become a major step in the right direction to save our planet. We want to celebrate the spirit of exploration, in the greenest possible way. And at the same time plant the seed of new ideas and easy individual methods to help curb the climate change process, by leading with example.
