An interactive artwork installed into an Enmore bus shelter, Sydney 4th Aug – 30th Oct as part of the Perfect Match Festival 2017, with Inner West Council. Sound communities is supported by a free phone app that can be downloaded at http://www.soundcommunities.net
In the bus shelter itself, there is a touch sensitive copper tape drawing mounted on a large sheet of acrylic plastic. When a visitor arrives at the site and opens the app, the app will pair with a bluetooth circuit attached to the drawing. When the visitor then touches the drawing, they will hear binaurally recorded sounds and stories of communities and community spaces and initiatives in Sydney’s Inner West.
For those who are unable to access the work in the bus shelter, there is a tappable version of the artwork in the app itself. Thank you to all the audio contributors.
