About The Project

Think about how many times per day that you pass by a stranger and simply pretend like you didn’t see them. You keep on with your daily routine without acknowledging their presence.  Each person that you pass has their own specific story and unique experiences that they have lived through. Each person has seen different scenarios and lived through different lives. Each person has something that you can learn from. Each person has their own special wisdom. Ignoring strangers isn’t necessarily bad, but think about how much you could learn by simply asking one question to the stranger you passed by at the supermarket.

The world is a bustling place but it doesn’t mean that it has to be an unwelcoming one too.

That’s why I started 14 Strangers. My plan is to think of a thought provoking question and ask that same question to 14 strangers; one stranger each day for 14 days. Each person will have 30 seconds to think of a response to the question and after 30 seconds of thinking, the film starts rolling and their response will be recorded. At the end of the 14 days I’ll think of a new question and repeat the process. 14 new strangers. 14 new days.

By the end of a year of this project I’ll have met 365 new people and gained 365 new perspectives. Every two weeks I’ll post a video of the responses I received and give you some insight about the process and the people I’ve met.

  1. awesome project!!! I’m doing a similar one – ‘dream catching project’ which you can check out on my blog bohohobonomad.wordpress.com also involving interviewing strangers! we each hold a unique perspective of the world and isn’t it so humbling and heart warming to see through the eyes of others? good luck with your project – i enjoyed watching your videos you’ve put up so far and look forward to seeing more 🙂
