On 28 September 2006, Alison Croney and I boarded a plane in Los Angeles destined for Auckland, New Zealand. Over the next seven months we traveled through Australia, Japan, and India before returning to Boston on 26 April 2007. Our goal was to research sustainable design, community building, and human living. Along the way we participated in different work, culture, and language exchange programs with the intent of improving our understanding of the local people, our place in the world, and the relations between us.

This book contains a selection of photographs from our trip.
Matthew Mosher rocks the art world, and is often described as "a force of will, intellect, and creativity." The idol to adolescents supports healthy competition by teaching summer courses in carrot dueling and advanced squirt gun engineering using a teaching style referred to as "bottled lightning." While a student at the Rhode Island School of Design, Matthew wrote a manifesto titled “Nothing Is True” which denounces both Studio Furniture and American Politics. As an advocate for humanity the world over, he instills in others the passion to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Currently Matthew is mastering fine arts at Arizona State University, and you++ing his students in 3D Design. When he is not chasing squirrels or catching ducks, Matthew can be found cutting up one of many rugs in Paradise Valley.
