Carrying cities


What if cities could move? How would place and space be defined if they could? What if territory was mobile? How would that change national ideology?
For the performative experiment «Carrying cities», I will place several loudspeakers on each side of the Ledra Street border crossing, the oldest crossing through the UN controlled buffer zone in Nicosia, Cyprus. During a good half-hour, I will cross the border multiple times, each time carrying one loudspeaker with me and bringing it to the other side. Each loudspeaker plays a different soundtrack associated with cities and countries connected to Cyprus.
