TOLL ROAD
Interviewer
2008-

In 2008, I will record 30-50 life histories of toll booth operators in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Rather than programming edited bytes-turned-docs on the radio, I propose to use transmitters at the side of the road, to allow riders to tune into these full-length life histories on a particular low frequency radio station. This project borrows from Oral History but also from traditional "sound walks," which are usually packaged as audio guides for tourists on foot; in this case, the tourists will be passengers on the highway.

Within the first year of the project over four hundred interviews were conducted with a wide variety of people who were affected directly and indirectly by the catastrophe. Two hundred follow-up interviews were conducted in the winter and spring of 2002, in order to allow those we interviewed in the first year to speak about the effects of their experiences over time.
