" THE STORY OF THIS PLACE "
"The Story of This Place" is an ongoing series of exhibitions and projects by artist Trystan Bates rooted in the documentation of humanity and the places we call home. Each installment of the project explores the past, present and / or future of a specific location and approaches the evolution of global society through contemporary art and viewer interaction. Gathered material will continuously be added to an online database and presented in interactive maps, site specific installations and public forums. The series will offer an accessible and collaborative portrait of who we are, where we came from and where we are going.
"THROUGH YOUR EYES" is the main interactive component of the project and will merge technology, viewer participation and art. Viewers are invited to record positive memories of things that happened in specific places they have visited or lived in. The memories along with some submitted photos of the participants will be put into the digital archive and incorporated into exhibitions, interactive maps and and public site specific installations . This collection of voices and stories gives familiar city streets personal meaning and adds new significance to unknown or overlooked locations.
THROUGH YOUR EYES provides participants with the chance to explore or contribute from anywhere while experiencing new places through the eyes, memories and voices of those who reside there.
