Reading Memories Routes at The Moving Gallery

Live art and multimedia installation by Alda Terracciano including sounds, prints, photographs, and audio recordings of Reading Buses passengers’ memories. 2017

On the opening day of the Moving Gallery exhibition, the artist performed one to one Memory Sessions with bus passengers, asking them to share a memory of a place they see from the bus in their daily journeys. The stories that emerged from these conversations were then woven together to form a web of collective memories of the past re-experienced in their dynamic relationship with the present. The digital memories were displayed on the double-decker bus, transformed into a temporary art space, and as an interactive audio installation at Jelly Gallery later. Listen to the memories here.
