Mapping Milan Collective Perception

Shape #1, is a six-audio-sculpture that recomposes the shape of the city of Milan. As a topographic map, each sculpture, with its different shapes and features, determines the group of people who designed it (architects, designers, children, inhabitants, artists, etc.) The voices behind each sculpture share a memory or a personal experience about the city. As Italo Calvino wrote in Invisible Cities: “it is not the voice that commands the story: it is the ear”. This installation goes beyond a simple form, allowing the observer to discover a collective spatial perception through storytelling.
