Warren’s Bonderman Fellowship journey is an exploration and re-connection with what makes us the most human. His travels will take him through South Korea, Thailand, Northern Africa, and Peru. His travel explores the notion of the Absurd across the world. Given a life which is short, uncertain, and full of struggle – it reflects a creature which is short-sighted, greedy, and selfish. Despite this, Warren believes what defines our humanity is not our shortcomings, but a shared acknowledgement of mutual hardships. And in that acknowledgement, we find a potential to rise above self-interest and embrace camaraderie, laughter, and a stoic diligence to a meaningful existence.
