Description: 

The map is an interactive map of Struer, that lets the audience listen to field recordings from different places in the hinterlands around Struer. The selected places has been pointed out as important to preserve as part of the cultural heritage. As part of Struer’s strategic work with sound as a cohesive force, the map is an initial exploration of how the cultural heritage can be activated through sound. 

The map is made from meticulously cut layers of plywood, imbedded with proximity sensors. The electronics comprises an arduino, an audio playback module and circuitry for amplifying for headphones and controlling LEDs.
