traces is a locative media work delivered on mobile phone, exploring the relationships of people, memory and place. In it, the environments we move through â€“ the streets, buildings; the parks and bridges and alleyways of Sydney’s CBD â€“ reveal themselves as sites rich with meaning, traced over with both personal and shared narrative.
In traces several people will disclose a range of true stories, recounting vivid, intense personal experience that has occurred in a specific place in Sydney. A postcard map marking out specific sites will tie the experiences to the locations, allowing audiences to experience the stories on their mobile phones in the actual sites if they wish. Audiences will also be able to submit their responses to the stories, or send in their own vivid location based experiences via SMS, email or blog. The Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Circular Quay and other inner Sydney locations will be included as sites within the project.
