Audio Curios: 35 Hours into a 72 Hour Broadcast!

Field Theory – a collective of artists based in Australia – undertook to broadcast continuously for 72 hours from Lancaster Park, Christchurch in November 2014.  The collective were interested in the narratives that tied people to the stadium and helped shape the enigma of place, memory and history.

This excerpt is taken from approximately 35-hours into the broadcast (Field Theory, 14-17 November 2014).
