Garden to Garden (A Research Lab Project)
A group of people from all backgrounds were invited to explore the green spaces of Vienna to see the city's parks and gardens as places of exchange, dialogue, and togetherness, and to discover, in particular the acoustic environment of these green enclosures. Together with the artist, the participants visited parks, listen, watch and delve into their specific stories. Garden to Garden offered new encounter with these green enclosures in Vienna, where participants share the personal experiences, stories, and memories they associate with them. The artist herself presented her own artistic research and sound recordings from the gardens of Teheran and Shiraz in southern Iran and use these soundscapes to compare the historical, cultural, and social significance of the garden in both countries.
