Story Bench @MAB14

Project: Research

See relations at Aarhus University


Invited to be a part of the Exhibition at the Media Architecture Biennale 2014.
The site specific Story Bench will be placed in the municipalities around Aarhus during 2015. Augmenting the function of a bench as a place for rest and mind wandering the Story Bench makes the local history come to life on location.
When leaning your head back to the head rest, a voice that only you can hear tells forgotten stories from the past of the specific surroundings, by conduction sound to the inner ear through the bones of the skull.
By sound designers Marie Højlund (Aarhus University) and Søren Lyngsø (Vectral) in collaboration with Gustin Architects commissioned by Kulturring Østjylland
