Adel Akram Alameddine — While You Are Here...

Genius Loci — Winter 2022

While You Are Here... is a contemplative approach towards a collective field recording practise at a space of undergoing transformation. From a technical point of view, the entry level for participation has to be as low as possible - through the use of smartphones. At the same time, the act of using the technology - the act of recording - should be linked to a process of reflection on the practice of field recording. By asking questions that go beyond the simple act of capturing and naming an environment or situation, guidance and awareness are provided. In addition, it is intended to raise curiosity about the practice of field recording and to provide information to get started in archiving, questioning, and experiencing our surroundings.
