Join Katherine Bennett for a walk and demonstration of The Depository. The group will meet outside the main entrance to SFU, across from JJ Bean Coffee.
The Depository is a soundscape portal that creates a tangible representation of people through personal audio messages. Through this sonic window, participants can anonymously vocalize their concerns, recording messages for others to listen to, or listening to messages posted by others. The work gives form to digital information and challenges notions about communities that are brought together through media. By facilitating communication between strangers through the buffer of asynchronicity and delay, it creates a social and liminal space.
