Here Comes Everybody is a locative artwork and story developed by Close and Remote. You can listen to the story at home or away as twelve mp3 chapters, or if you're in London experience it as a GPS enabled story set along the banks of the River Pool in Lewisham.
This atmospheric artwork, inspired by James Joyce's novel Finnegans Wake, leads you along the Riverpool Linear Park. The new story intertwines multiple narratives that drift between contemporary references and urban landscapes.
Original story and artwork by Sophie Mellor and Simon Poulter (Close and Remote).
The story questions the impact of technology in our lives, the onset of user generated surveillance and personal privacy.
It is an immersive soundscape of the park creating moments of serendipity, where the physical present folds into the intimacy of the story being told. Includes location sounds by Peter Cusack and Maria Papadomanolaki. Narrated by Shereen Elizabeth and Cormac Faulkner.
Here Comes Everybody is a Close and Remote project commissioned by UP Projects as part of the Secret Garden Lewisham programme, working in partnership with the London Borough of Lewisham and supported by Arts Council England.
