North of the Internet is a series of conversations with creative human beings founded by Julien Fernandez and Morgan Enos.
This is our home. A North-point in empty space. Also refers to our home page.
We post one every weekday. These can be 1D, 2D, 3D or more. We don’t use the word “interview” in the North.
Our conversations are organized by the weeks of the year, not by our site’s founding. After 52 weeks, we begin again.
Meaning first degree. A conversation started by one of our founders or guest curators.
Second degree. A conversation initiated by one of our initial subjects to a subject of their choosing.
Third degree. A 2D subject goes on to speak with someone else. An organic connection begins, and this can continue into 4D, 5D and more.
An imaginary chart that connects our curator, subject and the North into a constellation.
A visual combination of landforms, organized week-by-week. You can find all the constellations in the Atlas.
Get lost in the plexus of words that every conversation generates. Access it through the Wiring and Data section.
Morgan Scott Enos is a California-born recording artist and journalist.
The intent of his curatorial work for North of the Internet is to bring creators’ more internal, subconscious thoughts to the wider world and to understand his creative relationships with others better.
Morgan is currently based in New York, where he continues to creatively fire on all cylinders.
Julien Léonard Fernandez is a French/Spanish multidisciplinary artist based in Pescara, Italy.
Previously, he was the drummer of the bands Chevreuil and Passe Montagne. He also curated the prolific European independent label Africantape between 2008 and 2014. His work for that label was built around self-sufficiency, self-education, interconnectivity, friendship and sudden encounters with the unknown.
Now, Julien’s creative work rests partly on silence. He draws vectorial shapes and writes about contagion, narrative logic, fog and magic.
The site design and architecture of North of the Internet was conceptualized by Julien Fernandez. It is built around the idea of organic connections between people.
In the Wiring & Data section of each conversation, you’ll find a graph system. It comes from an imaginary algorithm built around three notions that tend to be challenged by the art of conversation:
1. The question
2. The expectation of the answer
3. The actual answer
The intent of the question always contains an expected answer, which is usually distorted by different variables or by the subject themselves.
This project was also brought to life with the help of designers Bas Mantel, Samuel Cochetel and Emiliano Colantoni, photographer Alessio Federico and cinematographer Mia Cioffi Henry.
