Libraries as Gardens

Be the first to favourite this.

This creative project wants to geolocate and map, on a global scale, the before, during and after of the coronavirus lockdown, through recordings of the stories of people, told in the libraries of their homes during quarantine and about the public gardens that they remember. The recordings are simultaneously transferred in an augmented audio project, with sound walks for the future, in the gardens when they open again, made available (for free) through CGeomap for all their walkers

We ask you to send us two recordings you make in your home library – reading space, during the lockdown or before the end of June 2020.

A project by CGeomap and by Made of Walking
