X Marks the Spot
2012
Web-archive | Augmented Soundmap

X Marks the Spot is an augmented sound mapping project with a web-archive. A slowly growing and playful map of Belfast assembled by tagging specific telecommunication boxes, only those emitting a drone (continuous hum).

The tagging process aims to engage people with the space around them. To understand how sound shapes our experience of the city.

By inviting other people to participate in the process, this activity is designed to spread throughout Belfast creating a stronger connection with the city.

The Web-archive was constructed using a fully responsive layout allowing it to work cross-browser and both Android and iOS, thus enabling users to augment their experience of each tagged location.
