A short series of augmented video works created for La Monnaie / De Munt Opera. The audience is given a tablet with headphones and invited to line up a photograph on the screen with a location around the building. Once it is lined up a video begins to play, so it is as if you are watching in realtime through the camera on the device. A singer appears from inside the building and begins singing an aria, in your ears the sound of the city fades away until you can only hear the singers voice echoing around the empty streets. The sound of their singing defines and highlights the architecture of the city.
