Walking piece details
Memento – Wanstead Park, uses oral history recordings made by Olivia Bellas, to piece together an identity for a public space fused with personal recollection and a nod to the future. Local voices gently guide you around the park and into their own memories.
The concept is different to previous memento sound walks with no actors, instead ‘real voice’ is meshed together. What stays the same is that it allows listeners to put on their headphones and switch on their senses – absorbing stories against the backdrop of their own field of vision. Take a memento from your experience or leave one behind.
