Constructing a Soundscape results from an iterative reflection of two particular sites. The presence of sound in a given context is presented through the use of photography and text. Sound events heard at three distinct moments of the same day, are described via text which is then layered on each corresponding photograph. Photography and text (sound) share and negotiate the visual space of the photographic frame.
