Take part in an experiment exploring how high density urban environments impact our well-being, liminal states of being and sense of agency.

Tracks are available to listen to free on or for download

1. Relating to a transitional or initial stage of a process.
2. Occupying a position at, or on both sides of, a boundary or threshold.
There is no ‘right or wrong’ way to approach this experiment. Each person can explore his or her own reactions and responses from their own perspective.
