David Lynch – The Interview Project

David Lynch’s Interview Project launches today. The idea behind Interview Project is simple, David Lynch and his team travel the US interviewing people they come across. And that’s about it: in essence the Interview Project is just a big, unstructured oral history project (though it does remind me a little of the field recordings of American folk songs made by John Lomax and Alan Lomax.)

The David Lynch Interview project has only just gone live – there’s only one interview up at the moment – so it’s a little early to judge its success or otherwise, however, I think it’s a great example of someone using the internet to create and disseminate content that wouldn’t be considered by most broadcast networks as well as letting people who ordinarily have no voice tell their stories.
