Streets of 7 cities, 7 minutes opens at Rich Mix

It's been 8 years in the making, but finally Alda Terracciano's video installation is complete, and will be calling East London it's home in January. Streets of… 7 cities in 7 minutes is a video sound installation composed of seven art works, which immerse the audience in a virtual reality of the distinguishing sounds, images and smells of Naples, Shanghai, Mumbai, Tangier, Salvador de Bahia, Lisbon and London. The project has been designed by the artist Alda Terracciano to uncover the ancestral memory of three historical, intersecting journeys (the Indo-European migrations, the Silk Road, and the Transatlantic Slave Trade) as they unconsciously resurface in people’s everyday life across the globe, through sounds, movements, and common rituals. You can watch the preview video here

which should give you a far clearer understanding of this complex piece; but we cannot stress enough that these are the kind of videos that should be enjoyed in full. Plus, with the artist on hand for walks and talks, you can really let your eyes and mind wander around the world...
