Dafna created a sound walk in a Brooklyn park. She utilizes visuals to represent a different sound sequence or tone.

 

I joined her and her students on this walk to experience wandering through space using sound.

Observation

0 interactions were happening amongst her students

Key Takeaway

If I want my users to interact with the local community around them all of their senses must be alert.

 

The sense of touch was the only one that I could use to help direct my user without completely distracting them.
