In Wanderlost, 31 Down considers personal privacy issues
and the paranoia surrounding new technologies by eavesdropping on live
police scans to search for clues in the world of the dispatcher. Employing
the central motif of a 1940s style detective radio program featuring the
fictional case of missing nightclub singer Helen Tremble, Wanderlost creates
a tension between fact and fiction.
31 Down invites you to listen to live police scans and
also spy in to a private Detective who is in hot pursuit of
Helen Temble as she makes her way to the Brooklyn Bridge. This story is
a continuation of 31 Down's Chase The Bitch saga which is inspired by
Tchaikovsky's opera Pique Damme in which detective Mike Sharpie plays
the role of Herman, an obsessed gambler. The first chapter in this saga
was performed as part of Free103point9's Tune(in))) The Kitchen in April
Wanderlost was created by Mirit Tal and Ryan Holsopple.
