Timothy Reed & Spoon Jackson
Tomorrow’s Ken is an invitation to reflect on the humanity of those living within the American prison system. It is a collection of video portraits of people who are currently or formerly incarcerated. Each portrait is centered around an audio-recorded interview, with original music and imagery added in support of the narrative. This project is facilitated by composer, Tim Reed.
