The Present Collection is a self-guided individual audio tour through London. The participants are sent on the road equipped with an ipad mini and headphones. An especially created application guides them through the streets of London and plays bespoke audio content that matches their location and provides the soundtrack to their journey from post to post. The Present Collection aims to engage the audience/listeners in a narrative way with their environment. There are no descriptions of landmarks or encyclopaedia knowledge. Instead the content is based on interviews with people on the street, employees of businesses, organisations and institutions the participants pass.
