WEB PROJECTS
Interconnected Echoes functions as a basis for a series of interviews, in which Stone asks people he admires big questions. As the interviews progress everybody questioned adds a question. These questions in turn become the basis for future interviews. Each question links back to the answers of the person who asked it.

Optimism As Cultural Rebellion provides ongoing documentation of Stone’s practice.

InfinityTimesInfinity (∞x∞) is a snapshot diary of Stone’s life.
