Antiview, The Death of the Interview

ANTIVIEW, a project by Australian journalist Max Opray, frames  interview in a negative perspective.   According to Opray, it was " born from the death of the interview. When journalists stopped asking new questions, and interviewees stopped answering from the heart. For a long time now, most interviews involve the same set of questions to the same type of celebrities, who regurgitate the same stale answers again, and again, and again.
So, what if instead of asking people who they are, someone asks who they aren’t? What kind of answers would people give? And what would we learn about them from who they don’t think they are?
And so Antiview was created. The one rule is that every question has to be negatively-framed: How wouldn’t you describe yourself? What doesn’t motivate you? If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things wouldn’t you bring?
In the same spirit, Antiguides explain how not to do something,  while Antiquotes offer wisdom in a negatively-framed form."
This week, Opray interview yours truly.  Follow this link to read it
