You Spirits that Tend on Mortal Thoughts

Sharang Biswas

An outdoor, interactive performance augmented with GPS-based media. Participants must help a woman whose emotions are held by the ghosts of New York.


Participant-viewers of this interactive performance are charged with aiding a woman whose peculiar ailment seems to be the loss of her emotions. By exploring the area surrounding Washington Square Park, they may discover, as auditory hallucinations only accessible by modern technology, the lingering memories of ghosts of New York City’s past. Participants can engage with the stories and attempt to reintroduce the ailing woman to her emotions, unlocking her fragmented memories in the process.
