Offerandestraat: Experimenting with Flash Encounters with Strangers on Dress
Published Web Locationhttps://doi.org/10.5070/S5221020028
What can you learn about a stranger on the street in under five minutes? What are the best ways to begin a conversation with someone that could lend itself to more in-depth interviews, or quickly establish a small amount of trust interviewer and interviewee? In this experiment, we find that asking strangers about what they are wearing is an effective and surprisingly intimate way to begin a dialogue with strangers on the street. We further reflect on the methodological and creative issues which arose during the editing and presentation of this inter-discplinary collaboration.
