Fragment

A series of site specific FM radio broadcasts based on a collision of ideas from Italo Calvino’s book Invisible Cities and transcripts from interviews with survivors of ruined cities both contemporary and historical. Sited in remote landscapes in South West Scotland, audiences tuned into the broadcasts on their car radios. The soundscapes of Fragment created a sense of cities, real and imagined, continuously overlaying each other in an empty landscape; a permanent cycle of growth and decay. Broadcasts were looped and could be listened to over a continuous 72 hour period.
