Bridging the World with Scanner

Scanner - Bridging the World concept visual

To celebrate Bridge, the museum is working with international artist Scanner to create an immersive sonic installation inspired by these essential, yet often taken for granted structures.

Scanner will take visitors on a journey through a river of hanging speakers within the museum, suspended in mid-air. Each speaker will broadcast recordings collected from people in London and across the globe.

You can take part in this epic artwork by visiting the Museum of London Docklands on recording days or sending your own recording to [email protected]. There are more details about what to submit on Scanner’s website.

Recording days:
7, 12 and 27 July between 2-4pm at the Museum of London Docklands.

Bridging the World will be launched at the Late London: sonic city event, on 5 September and will run until 2 November 2014.

Commissioned in partnership with Sound and Music
