O'Hara-Baker calls it a, "multidisciplinary mixtape about being a human being, meant to slow you down and fill your senses." The project brings together over 30 artists from around the world, including the US, the UK, Denmark, Spain, Morocco, and Greece.
Actor/director Natasha Halevi described how the global pandemic has affected her work saying, "In the US, people are responding to the coronavirus very differently in each state and there isn't a united response across the country, so I wanted to explore some of the "every man for himself" mentality I've witnessed." She goes on to say, "It wasn't a pleasant exploration, but art isn't always pleasant."
With regards to the digital zine format, O'Hara-Baker says, "IN HERE | OUT THERE is an opportunity to take a break from the way we usually consume things. Especially now, when all of our routines are being interrupted, it's a chance for 'slow consumption' – taking our time to watch, listen, take a breath, mull it over." It's also an opportunity for artists, many of whom are losing work or are on hold during this time, to come together and create.
Actor Melia Kreiling says, "The lack of access to professionals and equipment has made me focus on the intention, rather than the outcome. And I'm discovering great happiness in this little corner for the time being. It's reminding me why I wanted to perform in the first place: connection not perfection."
