 LOGO DEFINITIVO

Two senses is an empirical project that combines visuals with captured sounds to bring viewers into a space. The natural sounds of an environment can have profound impacts on how we experience, view or remember a place. Whether it be for describing or sharing our experiences, reflecting on the past, or for gathering insight into an unknown community or culture, sound can be an insightful tool.

This first series takes you to the heart of Patan and Kathmandu, Nepal.

So, slow down

and remember,

to listen.
