Topic: Cultural Diversity
Location: Buenos Aires, Argentina
Arrorró is a project about cultural diversity that attempts to create a technological bridge between different realities. Two cities will be connected in real time to share cradle songs, lullabies, and even songs to sleep and wake up to. It contains rhythms and sounds that can be understood across languages, barriers, and distances. The goal is for hundreds of people to share dreams, traditions, and languages through lullabies. Arrorró aims to couple emotion with technology, thereby creating a natural space to represent diversity.
