Adie Russell’s Who I Am (2008, 4 min.), uses audio excerpted from an interview with then-psychologist and Harvard professor Richard Alpert, as he discusses the transient nature of identity and how our attachment to the learned behaviors associated with our culturally identified personas, though not who we really are, affect how we interact with nature and each other.
