100 Hours: Portland

After conducting The World in Twelve in 2015, a project where THYNK founder Leo Kominz lived in a different city around the world for a month each and orchestrated various culture comparing projects and interviews, he conceived 100 Hours in 2017, where he aspired for similar goals in a span of 5 days in each city. Disclaimer: It did not work. However, he did get interesting thoughts and ideas from various people in the cities he visited, and here they have found new life as thynk_uncut. (Photo by Zack Spear)
