Introduction to Soundwalk/Walkshop: The Virtual “Guide Dog”: Dialogical Drifts
Invitation to walk a drift with someone far away.
The purpose of this “walkshop” is to create dialogical drifts between two people in different and preferably very distant locations. The participants are organized in pairs and each guides the other in the drift, as if it was a virtual guide dog, through communication by mobile messages.
If you want to walk with someone else on a distant location register by writing an email to Laura: firstname.lastname@example.org. A short virtual introduction will take place 4.11. 9pm Tbilisi Time (6pm CET). You can arrange an individual date for the actual soundwalk once you have been paired with another participant.
The objectives are as follows:
– To show how the perception of the place changes when we move not guided by our intention but by the will of another who also does not know the physical place where we are.
– To show the creative potential of Geolocated media as explorations tools. Instead of simply being used as an application for not getting lost it can be used to awaken curiosity and to discover.
– Increase “glocal perception”: each person is a perceptive being living in their local environment and at the same time connected globally which allows us to share our local experiences on a global level.
