Kansas City, MO – Nancy Hwang is seated on a couch waiting to connect with people. Her goal is to break down social barriers and build bridges between people in Kansas City.

MUSIC: "Symmetry" (2007), by Kansas City group Monta at Odds. In a recent exhibition at Review Studios, artist Jorge Garcia Almodovar's wall piece called "Untitled (Symmetry)" (2007) used a sound-activated electronic color organ, which translated this song.
