LIBRARIES AS GARDENS

Be the first to favourite this.

Libraries as Gardens is a creative project that wants to geolocate and map, on a global scale, the before, during and after of the coronavirus lockdown, through sound recordings and the stories of people, told in the libraries of their houses during quarantine and about the public gardens that they remember.

The recordings are simultaneously transferred in an augmented audio project, creating 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 to be made by you in your “house library” or in your reading space, during the lockdown or before the end of June 2020.
