On May 7 2011, from 9am to 8pm, ten performers, placed in ten different spots of the city of Bristol, incessantly describe everything they see and hear; this incessant description, recited like a prayer, is individually recorded by each performer to create a 45 min. long audio archive.
The recited descriptions are as much of people, situations, attitudes, events, as of buildings, structures, itineraries, activities, routines, objects, atmospheres, circumstances, sounds, smells, including also the impressions, deductions, and intuitions of the describing or narrating subject.
The audio tracks created by the performers, or "prayers", may be heard, downloaded, and combined using the structure above, thus allowing the visitor to reproduce in some way the complexity of the experience lived and recorded by the performer.
