UNBUILT I ATHENS Mapping Communications Soundscape // Installation
Mapping sound is forming a place where sound becomes as much a part of auditory experience, as the material of sound itself. Architectural form, hence, is a product of place-based sound features within a spatial experience of opportunities to situate a listener with an intensification of immediate experience that expands beyond a point of focus to an environmental situation.

This project is a discussion and negotiation where mapping communication is the mapping of sounds which cannot be built, but affected by the built. The aural geography and locational mapping becomes less a place-holder of spatial urbanistic viewpoints, but a broad theme of global listening points–thus, to listen to a sound, is to listen to the entire body of the sound world in microdetail (footnote).
