WildUrban Radio

A device which allows pleasurable eavesdropping on our wildlife neighbours. The navigation knob allows exploration of near-by wild audio streaming. As we tune into the life of an animal, we can sync our daily routines with it, creating a new type of bond.

The WildUrban Radio was created in collaboration with MIT Media Lab Ecology group. Exhibited at Harvard GSD as part of the Ecological Urbanism Conference.
