Listening Post

~ concept

In reaction to the ever increasing amount of visual influences in our daily lives. I questioned the need and use of audio, and how it effects our imagination.

Creating a Listening Post a post connected to the internet allowing the user to phone or log-in to each post like a webcam. Allowing one to listen to a place they find interesting, or revisit a place they have been using their knowledge of the area to reinterpret the sounds to create their own story.

Each post is 2m tall with the microphone installed at the top giving a relatively accurate sound depiction in comparison to our own ears. With the physical location and phone number written on the side of the post. Designed to resemble nondescript street signs and posts whose function is to only convey the information needed.
