Prague Quadrennial 2019
Remember Me is an interactive sound project that archives the sonic environment of the Prague Exhibition Grounds prior to the Prague Quadrennial 2019. With the Remember Me App, participants can journey to the chosen locations, orient themselves according to the photographs, and listen with their own headphones to the correlating binaural recordings. Embarking on an auditory voyage through time and space, participants are transported to the past through a sonic portal.
The artist wore binaural headphones with built-in microphones that recorded the sonic land from the artist's perspective. Participants listen to the environment exactly as the artist did on that day, at that time, and in that spot- a cyclist passes behind you as the wind rustles tree branches to your left and a bird to your right sings in competition with the mechanical honks of cars from the street ahead.
The sounds that are indigenous to these environments are digitally preserved. These aural records remind us that our land has a past with monumental memories and a voice with a story to tell.
If nature could speak, what would it say?
