Pattern Which Connects, Finding Community
by Antonio Dias
One reason things have been a little slow here in the past few weeks has been the work involved editing this conversation with Jeppe Dyrendom Graugaard. It is now up on his site: Pattern Which Connects.
Here is his introduction:
Last February I approached Tony Dias for an interview about his involvement in and thoughts about the Dark Mountain Project. This turned into a series of dialogues about his work and my own, a process of mutual sense-making. In this process, we have gradually arrived at an increasingly shared language and understanding of what we are doing. Finding community seems like an appropriate headline for this. Here, we open up this dialogue for others to enter, in the same spirit of gift as some of the previous conversations that have been published here. A note on how this written version of our spoken interaction came to be: after producing a literal transcription of our recorded conversation I sent this to Tony who then edited it, and in a further couple of exchanges back and forth, we produced the below version which stands as an accurate translation of the first part of our conversation. We have added italics where we feel emphasis is needed and linked to some of the concepts and ideas that are woven into the dialogue for clarity.
I want to thank Jeppe for his effort and interest. I hope you take the time to take a look.
