Media Resources - Kinship

This video from the Cleveland Clinic reminds us all of the underlying experiences and emotions that make us kin.


In a world where the act of touch is reserved to those that people are comfortable with, this exhibit breaks through the stereotype and creates images that suggest that these complete strangers are close – like friends or family.
