An audiovisual installation that represents two key places in Saint-Louis, the fifth most populous city in Senegal: the great mosque of Guet N’dar and the market of N’dar Toute.
These places have been deconstructed in space and time through photographic shots and field recordings* collected 12 hours apart from each other during key moments in the social life of the village.
* The sound part of the project was recorded by TFTF.
TFTF is a collective of designers (Davide Belotti, Riccardo Cavallaro and Antonino Rizzo) established in 2013. TFTF interprets the practices of design as a tool for analyzing and narrating the space around us.
The first place, the road intersection in front of the mosque (a.k.a. the pelican crossroad because of the animal that lives there), is presented through the recording of the prayer song sang at dawn and through the images at sunset on the day of Tabaski.
Play the soundscape and explore the 360° image of the crossroad.
Play the soundscape and the explore the 'sample' gallery (15 images).
The pairs of images and soundscapes allow the observer to reconstruct the experience of those places through a non-didactic sensory combination process.
