Silkthreads

Between 2004 and 2005 Denise Bryan and Adrian Wilkins (sound artist) travelled along the Silk Road. During the journey they created a website. Visitors to the site could request sights or sounds that they would like to see or hear, collected from the places that the artists were travelling through. In this way the artists journey was influenced by the requests that they received. As the website grew more categories were added to this Cabinet of Curiosities. The work was intended to be a 21st Century version of the Wunderkammer, one that was accessible to everyone via the internet and one that did not entail the plunder of cultural objects from the places that the artists visited.
