Project details

Audio Crumbs is an innovative way of stimulating interaction and communication between individuals, whether they know each other or not. Using a mobile application and headphones, participants are guided by the narrator, who tells them where to go and what they have to do. 

Focusing on a specific theme, each session can be experienced in a specific space – museum, public space, company seminar hall – or anywhere in the world, bringing together people who log in simultaneously. Each person has a different role to play and different instructions to follow, thus making for an experience that is individualized yet collective. 

In a world where people are glued to their smart phone screens and more and more isolated in their various digital worlds, Audio Crumbs is an offbeat solution designed to raise awareness of the importance of face-to-face exchanges and physical interaction. Audio Crumbs addresses the UN’s Sustainable Cities and Communities Sustainable Development Goal.
