250 Miles Crossing Philadelphia

Visual artists Esther Polak and Ivar van Bekkum lived in Philadelphia for 7 months. New to the city, they invited inhabitants, both human and non-human, to explain their city through movement.

Wandering by themselves, the protagonists recorded their trajectories, sounds and private readings of the streets, allowing the artists, and visitors of the website with them, to access their experiences only afterwards.

An innovative cartographic approach introduces a landscape of satellite images where one can travel along with the protagonists, while balancing between voyeurism and empathy. The meditative experience questions our contemporary techo-society, where eavesdropping and social connectivity coexist.
