For this week’s assignment, we had to interview someone about a project they are working on and map out the process using the model we discussed in class.

For this week’s assignment, we were told to conduct an interview with someone and then represent what they were saying visually. I’m interested in digital folklore, so I asked two friends my favorite question: What are some of your earliest memories of using a computer and/or the internet?
Interview #1: Julia Palermo
Interview #2: Joao Costa
At first I found that it was difficult to engage with the interviewee while I had my eyes down and sketching, but after we got used to the format I found that the interviews weren’t difficult to conduct. I asked questions in order to show that I was listening and engaged while I was drawing. Overall, the two interviewees seemed to enjoy telling me stories about using computers and the internet for the first time.
