Sonic Wells

Sonic Wells

Sonic Wells consists of a series of 'wells' which function as portals of communication between cities. Each 'well' collects ambient sounds, including the voices of those peering in, which are then transmitted live and emitted from its sister wells (as if via virtual holes through the earth). The audio emitted from each portal is clear enough that people are able to hold conversations between cities. The wells thus become contemporary gathering places, recapturing the historical function of the well as communal meeting place, while expanding its potential by connecting the geographically seperated communities in a real-time soundscape.
