Interview dialogues with people of different place, experience and belief on ideas of self/not; time; perception; light and other things that bring wonder or questions to me.

Listen to the monthly radio show on VERGE.FM where i curate episodes of excerpts from the interviews.  

Update: September 2021 – from here on out, interviewees will have the option to remain anonymous or to be named. As this project began in 2014 as an anonymous thing, anyone in a previous interview has the same option. This is a shift from the initial idea, where anonymity was needed for safety/privacy/solidarity. As I learn, I understand we can stand with people who need/choose anonymity and with those who need/choose to be named.

in 2014 i began to collect audio interviews on my travels and where i live. each year, a new question presents itself and each interaction with friends and strangers is a teacher in its own way. i believe asking questions of ourselves and imagining new worlds is important for human beings.

these interviews represent perspectives in a specific moment in the life of each person you hear speaking. opinions do not necessarily reflect my own, or their own past that moment. the answers to these sortof unanswerable questions are not as important to me as the interactions with each person and the act of asking these questions; listening to others’ ideas and perspectives; sharing them; and being open to change as life continues to begin and end.

autœthnographic study: the dialogues themselves are a reflection of questions that make me wonder of change and perception; of time and r/evolution of things. often i get in the way but i am learning.

all participants are recorded consentually. participants can choose to remain anonymous or to be named. all participants have consented to their dialogue being shared through my creative projects, classes, and social processes. thank you to all the people in my life who discuss their thoughts with me, off and on a machine. i am honored to share time and dialogue with you and with everyone who is listening. i share these human interviews with gratitude. – cole g
