Occupied is a site-specific, geo-triggered sound walk to be experienced in Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan. participants will explore the plaza listening to sounds and interviews from the 2011 Occupy Wall Street (OWS) occupation of the park while contemplating larger questions about public space and assembly.
Geo triggered audio linked to the former locations of working groups during the occupation–kitchen, library, media, comfort, etc–will allow walkers to explore the park non-linearly. As they approach an area, audio clips relating to that location will be triggered. This experience replicates the experience of exploring the encampment in 2011 by not privileging any one narrative or point of view.
