The Cities Within' is a sound walk which takes the shape of a do-it-yourself walk-tour and invites you to enter a one-to-one relationship with the city of Vienna.

Through a combination of ambience sounds and a voice over narration, the visitors will be guided through the neighbourhoods of Leopoldstadt and Favoriten, the 2nd and the 10th districts respectively.

This project moves away from the city touristic centre and focuses on the outer districts which more often than another are negleted by authotities. 

The visitors will be passing through streets and places that are not always so common, but are significant to the personal and collective memory of the local inhabitants. In fact this project finds its inspiration in a number of conversations held with the locals of Leopoldstadt and Favoriten.
