Day 2, Display 2: Lost & Stolen Friend

With thanks to Catherine Jones and Luke Bacon for your collaboration.

Lost & Stolen Friend examines the journey and ambient environs of Hoa Hakananai’a, which was taken from Easter Island in 1868 and moved to London, to the British Museum. We’ve used sound to indicate place. Easter Island waves to visitor hubbub and a security announcement about suspicious characters.
