Look Down at Your HandsView Project
Look Down At Your Hands is an immersive site-specific audio walk. It was originally conceived by an international collective of artists: Mao-Kang Chen (TWN), Tom McLaren (UK), Rotem Volk (ISR), Paula Varjack (UK) and Josephine Were (AUS). It was first created for Regent's Canal, London (2013) through a process of interviewing inhabitants of the site and negotiating the site as artists in it. It has since gone on to be performed in Tel Aviv and Tai-Pei.
The experience aims to give each audience member the opportunity to walk in another’s skin, to become part of a new community and experience the differences between those who inhabit it. The piece invites the audience to look at the site through new eyes and to enable them to explore social themes from a new perspective.
