Sounds of a Delivery

Dictaphone Parcel from Lauri Warsta on Vimeo.

This short titled Dictaphone Parcel won the Passion Pictures Prize in London, in February 2010. What does your package hear as it travels from source to destination?

“Dictaphone Parcel is an animation based on a sound recorded with a dictaphone travelling secretly inside a parcel. As the hidden recorder travels through the global mail system, from London to Helsinki, it captures the unexpected. We hear a mixture of abstract sounds, various types of transport and even discussions between the mail workers. The animation visualizes this journey by creating an imaginary documentary.” – Lauri Warsta
