Silence of the Lands
Silence of the Lands enables participants to annotate and map the soundscape of urban and natural environments. Participants can record and collect ambient sounds, create and share individual and collective cartographies, and use them as conversation pieces of a social dialogue on natural quiet. The result is a pervasive museum in which natural quiet is transformed into a living and affective geography that changes over time according to participants’ perceptions and interpretations of their environmental setting.
