Imagine walking through the city and triggering moments in time. Imagine wandering through a space inhabited with the sonic ghosts of another era.
"Media arts have grown around our abilities to record various aspects of sensible reality - still images, sound, moving images. Now we have the new capacity to capture the location, and it is opening up all kinds of new possibilities. 34 North 118 West goes beyond the previous artistic experiments in location-based media by combining the inventive use of GPS technology and rich cultural content. The project lets the user uncover samples of Los Angeles's hidden history as s/he navigates through the multi-layered depths of downtown's most poetic and surreal space. The result is a new kind of "scripted space" (Norman Klein): a motion experience, which is emotionally moving." – Lev Manovich
