Dissolving Localities

An Audio Visual project in which daily life is transformed into art. Sound and video artists capture, record and film people, nature, industry and religion using these recordings as sources for artistic creation.

The project is an open framework capable of combining any city, any culture at any time. It is created as a platform for intercultural and multicultural dialogue using real life as artistic inspiration and instrument.

While originally developed as an attempt to recreate Jerusalem, the project has evolved into a global framework and platform for recreating daily life any where and anytime as a source for artistic work.
