Google Maps has brought an incredible amount of images of the world within reach. ‘That is great, but I miss the interaction. Auditive impressions will be a major factor in determining our experience.’ In Luisterlandschap (Sound landscapes) Naomi Yasuda has made Google Maps come to life by adding sound. Her first voyage of discovery is the Pieterpad, a walk that runs from the Pieterburen village in Northern Groningen to the Sint-Pietersberg hill in the South of Limburg. Through www.luisterlandschap.nl anyone can travel along with her. Scroll over the walkway, add sounds and comments where needed, and experience a new way of travelling.
