As I made my way alone back down Frank Lloyd Wright’s loopy, utopian ramp I passed other visitors and their guides (or interpreters, to use Mr. Sehgal’s preferred term) in conversation. I later learned that a few verbal elements — Bob’s closing line and Giuliana’s opening questions — were scripted.
Everything else was extemporaneous. The interpreters had rehearsed timing with Mr. Sehgal, but otherwise, like the visitors, operated without instructions. No two conversations would ever be the same.
