Brave New Alps

And While London Burns by PLATFORM


Yesterday, together with our friend Serena we ‘performed’ the operatic audio walk And While London Burns , written by John Jordan and James Marriott and produced by PLATFORM as part of their ongoing project Unraveling the Carbon Web. In our opinion, this project is brilliant from many points of view and it represents well what we mean with “communication design”: by listening on our mp3 players to an incredibly well conceived and highly informative audio piece, we were guided through the streets and buildings of The City, and thus we discovered the relation between the oil economy and London, where the biggest and most powerful companies connected with this sector have their offices. We’re glad we were shown in such a powerful way this important part of the ‘carbon web’. We highly recommend everyone to do this walk, as it is quite hard to put into words the experience we had.
