ItinerantItinerant is a site-specific sound installation in Boston, Massachusetts. It invites people to take a walk through Boston Common and surrounding neighborhoods to experience an interactive sound work delivered via handheld computer and driven by GPS satellite information. During a walk which may last for more than two hours, visitors hear a personal narrative of family and displacement, interspersed with passages from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein — the classic tale of a technoscientific monster and the family love he witnesses voyeuristically, but cannot share.
