Wearing headphones audience will be guided by a GPS navigator. Presenting a myriad of intertwined stories around artificial intelligence and group decisions in transit, Remote Copenhagen will draw attention on the station areas as sites of conflicts and negotiations, on their architectural features and on the many different passengers, employees and local residents that come into contact at such sites. The stories will be accompanied by diegetic sound -recordings and atmospheric compositions created specifically for the places that the audience pass by during the audio walk.
The audio walk is available in Danish and English.
