A project for the Waterpod


Throughout the city, metal plates are fixed on walls. On it is written a phone number followed by to figures. If we call the number, we can leave a message on an answering machine and describe what we see in front of us. We can also listen to other people’s messages describing the place we are standing at right now. On the internet, a dynamic map of the city allows us to surf through this body of urban voices.
