In Place-Talk a box-shaped locative media device facilitates dialog between online and offline users. Questions can be uploaded to a small display on the box via a website, and answers are recorded by pushing a big button on the box, and subsequently sent back to the website. A city and its inhabitants can be explored remotely by leaving the box behind in public space, where it is picked up by strangers and taken elsewhere or passed on.

This work was developed as part of the Summer Sessions 2014 in a co-production of Chronus Art Center, Shanghai and V2_ Institute for the Unstable Media.
