Recent News: DAMMSel Day – A locative media project by Léola Le Blanc

DAMMSel Day is a pedestrian-based event set in Dartmouth. Set out on foot with a mobile phone and listen to a fictional narrative while being guided through paths, parking lots, cemeteries, and sidewalks listening to audio segments that intertwine with wandering, observation and experiences. This locative media project engages participants with the spontaneous choreography of the city as streetscapes and passers-by become the site onto which a personal cinema is projected. Through collaboration with the Dartmouth Heritage Museum, a selection of artifacts were chosen from the archives and helped activate the DAMMSel Day event. The history of whaling, Dartmouth’s Quaker heritage, and rum-running form a starting point for DAMMSel Day. Combined, these events come to life through a series of narrated anecdotes that unfold during the course of a day and where mystery, murder, and intrigue collide.

Access to the project is available at Alderney Landing in an information booth opposite the ferry entrance. To reserve an iPhone contact the artist at 476-6670. Wednesdays, Fridays from 10 am – 4 pm and Saturdays  11 am – 4 pm.
