This work imagines a future where nature has reclaimed our built environment and foraging for food reigns. Participants use a provided audio player and fold out field guide on a self-guided 30 minute walk. The walk starts at Philadelphia Community Access Media (Philly CAM), goes through the formal landscaping of Washington Square Park, and returns to Philly CAM. Taking the form of a real-time science fiction, with the sounds of “alien” flora and fauna, the audience will find themselves moving through the city accompanied by the sound work that maps onto their surroundings.
This work was created specifically for the 2017 Megapolis Festival, though can be done at any time following this map. Each leg of the map corresponds with a track number. (Map coming soon).
