Come Closer is an interactive sound installation, where visitors uncover and hear hidden whispers about loneliness scattered in a public space. It provides a spiritual and intimate experience, inviting visitors to take their time in a meditative and slow pace, connecting with strangers’ voices.
As visitors walk around the space and trigger those whispers, they feel as voices ‘coming from nowhere’ guides and comforts them. This experience addresses in a unique fashion diverse notions of loneliness, an omnipresent yet not often discussed topic in communities all over the world.
Visitors also have the chance to leave their trace by sharing their own whispered message, thus taking part in the installation.
