A soundwalk commissioned by curator Rosie Hermon, part of the Winter Trails: Remapping Nine Elms festival. Participants will be led together on an accessible and immersive soundwalk through the area undergoing massive redevelopment. Within the augmented reality of the soundwalk opportunities are created for personal speculation on place, time and the processes of change. http://nineelmslondon.com/events/winter-trails-remapping-nine-elms/opencity-nine-elms

Fellow artists collaborating on the project include Leigh Toro, Agnes Williams, Benedik Williams, Alasdair Thurston-Ambrose and Harry Freestone.
