Project Summary

“Some people think cities are only places of noise,” Sweeney explains, “but I think they have the potential to provide both chaos and calm.” It’s much easier to find noise, at present, but Sweeney and his team of designers and artists are trying to change that through the Stereopublic project. With support from City 2.0 Award and the Creative Australia initiative, they will build an online space--likely web and smartphone based--where people can essentially geo-locate and crowd-source quiet spaces.
