Parallel Places
Performance walk with custom-made devices
The Performance Arcade—annual festival of live art
Feb 27-Mar 1, 2020
Wellington, New Zealand

This is a LudiCity project, a collaboration between Sarah Burrell and Andrew Simpson.

Parallel Places is a series of interactive guided explorations of the public spaces surrounding The Performance Arcade festival site. For this project, LudiCity have developed a collection of custom-made devices that shift perception of the everyday spaces of the city and draw attention to previously unseen urban phenomena. The instruments offer alternative ways of interacting with the built environment and provoke acts of radical noticing.

Listen to architecture, create a drawing from surface texture, trace the passage of light and shadow, imagine a future city...

In a relatively small area, there are infinite ways of seeing, interacting, and imagining.
