THIS PROJECT EVOLVED out of a debate with a friend about understanding and whether isolating parts of wholes was a legitimate method to that end. Long story short, I ended up wandering around downtown Minneapolis asking random people to on the street to tell stories for me to record. The stories were then analyzed based on the archetypal narrative curve and plotted the relative timing of establishing setting, conflict, climax and conclusion both individually and contextually to the whole body of stories.

After visualing the comparative analysis, we created a sound installation at Minneapolis College or Art and Design illustrating the findings. There was a metaphor involved in this, and the result of our debate was inconclusive.
