stereopublic: crowdsourcing the quiet
Winner of a TED City2.0 prize stereopublic is a sonic health service for built environments. Using either the stereopublic website or iPhone app, people can discover and geo-locate quiet spaces, share them with social networks, take audio and photos and request an original composition from Sound Artist Jason Sweeney. Their quiet space is then added to an ever-growing crowdsourced map and they join a community of urban quiet seekers.
