The space that I ended up choosing was a bench right behind Market House, to the left of Market Square. I was intrigued by it because I had heard about its ability to transfer sound across the entirety of its form. If someone whispers at the wall on one side of the bench, it is clearly audible on the other.
During my observations of the place, I found it interesting that my main source of information about it was through word of mouth. I decided to focus on that idea as an important property of this space - the idea that one can only fully experience the space through oral storytelling.
I decided to make a scavenger hunt of sorts, with markers that would require interaction to fully understand. This made the viewer work to obtain the information, raising the barriers to accessing it. I felt this was appropriate because if the information was easily accessible, it wouldn't reflect the high barriers of access that word of mouth requires - the need to be in the right place at the right time, with the right people.
