Gabriel Hensche, IT FELT LIKE WALKING INTO THE TV, galerie l'inlassable

 

« I invited visitors to go for a walk through galerie l’inlassable’s neighbourhood in Paris. They were given headphones with built-in microphones, attached to smartphones, which navigated them through space and time. The GPS system would tell them where they were in the present while listening to the past—a soundscape of that same path taken during the previous visitors walk. During their own journey the microphone would continue this cycle, recording the present soundscape for future walkers. Therefore, in undertaking this walk they became producers and simultaneously witnesses of the previous walkers experience. While walking, I wondered how we can experience a given moment in a recorded world ? »
