A Crack In The Noise is a reflection of the humanitarian crisis of refugees. The Three Yells hope this project can lead to greater consciousness, support and healing. In our country, immigrants have always been under attack, but today even our highest ranking officials give power to what used to be fringe voices. A Crack In The Noise is a collaborative artwork strengthened by different genres, showing what can be accomplished when differences unite rather than divide.
This work expresses the hope, survival and desperation of a journey reflected in the poignant words of poet, Warsan Shire:
no one leaves home unless
home is the mouth of a shark
you only run for the border
when you see the whole city running as well
