"What would you do if I cheated on you?"
This is only one of the provocative questions asked in the fascinating interactive experience THE AND, which explores relationships, communication, and how we connect to each other.
Each audience member views a different short film — roughly a minute and a half long — based on answers to four questions posed at the beginning of the experience.
Created by The Skin Deep in collaboration with Noise and director Topaz Adizes, the project has been hailed in the media as a new and radical approach to having difficult relationship conversations.
