URBAN POTRAIT

 

This investigation is about how existing urban spaces and places are defined, used and occupied; and explore the interrelationships and interactions between the built environment and the people inhabiting  it. Structured in a series of consecutive exercises, each focusing on specific phenomena of urban space and introducing different techniques for perceiving, recording and communicating these issues. 

For this project, my partners and I built a device that uses two of our senses, sight and hearing, which would change their regular functions. The device is designed to reverse these two senses so that one sees everything upside down and hears every sound from an opposite direction.
