"The Qi Project" is an inquiry into the nature of humanity and what it means to be human at this moment in time. I interviewed people in front of a camcorder, via postcard, email, website and telephone. The questions asked were "What does it mean to be human?" and "What is humanity?" "The Qi Project" was conceived in 2005 after nine weeks of study and travel in China. The Project brings together nine years of video people watching, interviews in both written and video form, and welcomes audience participation. Website http://qiproject.net.
