About Swiss Selection Live: Binaural views of Switzerland

An audio-visual exploration into the impact of human activity on the Swiss Landscape since 1863, when the pioneering British photographer William England made his Grand Tour of Switzerland, creating stunning stereoscopic photographs of over 150 locations. Over a two-month journey, artist Alan Alpenfelt has re-discovered 30 of these locations, documenting the changes in their aspects and atmospheres, re-presenting them in his exhibition, using binaural sound recording and 3D photography. His work highlights the stark contrasts between past and present by immersing the visitor in the sights and sounds of each environment, then and now. Awareness of the effects of mass tourism, modern transport, climate change and industrial development dominates the exhibition, asking questions as to how resilience and conservation can somehow still be achieved.
