Handshake 302’s last exploration of Baishizhou was a collaboration between Handshake 302 and Shenzhen Center for Design. I comprised two parts: a silent walk through the urban village to collect sounds and a workshop discussion. Zhang Kaiqin and I led the walk (see map), while resident artist Zhang Mengtai led the workshop.
Focusing one’s attention on the sounds of Baishizhou enabled one to escape the idea of Baishizhou and experience something unforgettable, something that could only have happened then and there. Experienced in silence, Baishizhou is another landscape. Have you been?
