PolArt residency, Norilsk, Russia

january 2017

Norilsk is the northernmost inhabited city in the world. I have asked citizens of norilsk to accompany them on their daily routes (work-home, home-work, home-shopping center, home-ice rink) and interviewed them about their shortcuts, the way they try and find the shortest way home during extreme cold, about wind, about their desires and dreams, about how long have they lived in Norilsk and whether they are planning to stay here.

In the end I created 12 audio-routes, each 69 seconds long to be experienced on headphones.
