Episode 10 of Sensing Cities discusses with Slovenian artists Irena Pivka and Brane Zorman, founders of CONA Institute of Contemporary Art about their locative audiopiece Walk the City, a project about the lesser known yet socially and politically important areas of the city of Ljubljana and the attempt to try and break the “bubble-ness” of modern city dwelling and commuting by slowing down the process through walking, exploring and listening. Walk the City invites its participants to start paying attention to the urban environment via its hidden narratives and soundscapes.
