“Soundwalk” (“Citylophone”) is an urban intervention + game, which turns a sidewalk into a music instrument and passers-by into musicians. An instrument consists of several colorful keys on a sidewalk, a group of sound-makers and accidental passers-by, who step on the “keyboard”. Each key is insonified by a sound-maker, who can use music instruments, his or her voice, or any sounding artifact. We have developed this project to initiate a communication in public space between passers-by and street musicians. Our source of inspiration was a performance by Bobby McFerrin.

ENG: Linking Things is a sub-project, which promotes young designers and their collections. Also it is an urban game, as we ask designers to pass some items from their collections to passers-by as a gift :) This thing becomes a link between two strangers (the creator and the passer-by) and gets it’s own story. The project has been being developed by Laimikis.lt since april 2oo8.
If you are the author of interesting things, you can take part in the project, sending us a message: firstname.lastname@example.org

Since 2oo7 o3 o7 we develop “Street lucky catch” photo project: for us “lucky catch” is people on the streets of Vilnius, Kaunas and Klaipėda (Lithuania) mostly, but we are glad to include from other towns (and other countries) in it.
We see citizens as experts of the city. Unlike most of street fashion blogs, we consider photography as a communication with a passer-by and a way to pay a compliment. We interview passers-by on their lifestyle in a broad sense: we are interested in music they listen, books …
