INTIMAL App©

Tuning in to sense place and (tele)presence

An embodied interface from INTIMAL: Interfaces for Relational Listening, rooted in migration. Visit http://intimal.net

Documentary video of the INTIMAL App© 2021, incorporating voices of Colombian migrant women to be heard by other women. Original Idea and Artistic Direction: Dr. Ximena Alarcón-Díaz. Programmer: Kieran Harte. 2021-2022.

INTIMAL is an immersive walkabout telematic listening environment that brings together a group of people in an experience of tuning in with themselves, the environment and others.

I compose listening experiences with the INTIMAL App for specific environments and contexts, and incorporate sounds from the environment, pre-recorded sound, and participants' spontaneous voice.
