Singing Bergsjon, 2010, mixed media

 

Singing Bergsjon took place outside, in front of Gallery Bob in Bergsjon, Goteborg. I set up a karaoke machine with a small stage where visitors could take turns to sing a song that reflected their thought about the town or its people. It was set up outside the gallery facing the town and pathway to the tram. For people who may not want to sing, they could request a song on the Request board, and for those who were inspired by the songs, they could write part of a lyric on the Lyric board.
