I had a series of questions that I would bring up in the conversation - the core enquiry being if people saw themselves as '<i>on</i>' or '<i>in</i>' an island. I also asked people to describe their ideal island to me. Some people spoke to me for 5 minutes, others 45 minutes. Some people laid down on the bed with me and others sat on the edge of the mattress.</p><p> </p><p>I did not record the conversations with cameras or dictaphones etc, but I made some notes and sketches in a notepad while people talked.</p><div>Two jail-cells down the hallway, my collaborator in <i>The Island Could be Heard by Night</i>, Belinda Howden, was having her own island conversatons with audience members. </div><div> </div><div> </div><div> </div>
