Day 62 – Earth Ear

The artist Ai Weiwei has started an art project where a huge online 3D moon is used as a universal canvas for people to draw and write all over.

 I’d like to do a similar project but with sounds. Participants would be encouraged to record a sound that they feel is personal to the environment that they live in whether that sound comes from within their home, work place or from the outside world they experience on a day to day basis. All sounds submitted would show up on an online Google Earth style map where you can zoom in to specific areas of the World and hear the sounds people have uploaded. It would be interesting to hear how sounds changed from country to country, from rural to urban areas and even from within the same place.
