City to City
The project is connecting two cities: Košice and Sapporo. AVV installation is based on data tracking of experiences from people during the pandemic. Co-creation of two artists working together across the continents is a symbolic connection at overcoming virtual distances. The goal is to collect traces by using GPS on pedestrian and cyclist paths from topographic maps and various apps and make CGI animation with binaural sound. Beáta Kolbašovská is responsible for the visuals and Junichi Oguro for the sound.
