ALTERNATIVE HISTORY TO ROUNDABOUTS IN EC1 MAP



( click the icons to listen )

This is a project that seeks to uncover a hidden version of a typically unloved town planning feature.
The featured roundabouts are Arnold Circus & Old Street.
By listening the downlaodable audio file the user is Narrated a ficiotnal mythological history of the two sites.
The sound is used both a vessle to let
information in but also to force the user to withhold thier interaction with thier normal surrondings.

This isolation allows
for a more effective transmission of the fantastical narrative the audio file tells of.

This project aims to create a gap in what the user knows or see & what they hear. It is this space wich will aloow & encourgae them to
re-evaluate thier all too familar
surroundings.
