The Experience Archive

The Experience Archive is an ongoing reflection project Building Conversation has started working on in 2021. At Building Conversation we recognize the significance of the participants of our work and wanted to create a way to continue the conversations that our work ignites or brings up again. Even more so, our mission is to activate people to approach their own conversation culture as an artist and reflecting plays a big part in that.
The main focus of The Experience Archive is to gather and write down a profound collection of reflections and experiences from people that attended performances of Building Conversation – and to integrate this back and forth reflecting in our work process. With the reflections, we can form new connections, encounter new and other possibilities and, most of all, keep the dialogue going. The Experience Archive aims to extend the conversations and to open up new dialogues about our work.

Currently we have collected reflections about the following conversations:

Digital Silence Distant Thoughts

“I didn’t try to make any noise…well I don’t really make a lot of noise on my own (laughs)…in general so I was just like acting as I would, like even if the camera wasn’t on.”

“We had this really personal, intimate half an hour talk with each other, and then it is just gone forever. I don’t know what she even looks like. That also made it really special. This really bitter-sweet feeling is the right word to describe this.”

“I was so curious to observe…because there were people that I started to appreciate in the audience…”

“It was two strangers who never met, and probably we will never meet in our lives, but it just felt like talking to a person I know and who I am connected to on so many levels.”

“Everything becomes a part of the conversation, not only me as a person, but my laptop, the trees outside of my window for example, everything is taking part in the performance, in the actual conversation.”
