This sound installation aimed to aurally and visually recompose the city with citizens. As a part of a workshop series “Cityours”, we conducted fieldworks and field recordings for gathering urban materials(environmental sounds and photographs) at Shibaura, Tokyo. Then, Kenta Tanaka conducted “Urban Composition” by recomposing the urban materials of Shibaura with the workshop participants. His question is how would we re-experience the image of the city by means of participatory processes.
This sound installation was exhibited as a final deliverable of a workshop named “Cityours: Listening to the City” at Shibaura House, Tokyo on November 25th 2018. The workshop was lead by a Japanese urban planner Ayumi han and it aimed at improving civic-engagement by conducting several types of tactical intervention into the city.
