It’s like hammering into nothing when I speak it… documents the accumulative interview that k.g. Guttman held with mentor and friend Nancy Ring. The aim was to undo the typical succinct form of the interview, in order to probe the complexity of Ring’s ideas and the way in which questions and answers transform through repetition. Over seven lunches the same questions were repeated every day.
