Wondermart is an interactive audio tour that takes you on a journey of rediscovery whilst exploring the familiar surroundings of a supermarket.
Audiences became immersed in a private soundscape, where the real blurred with the imaginary, and the everyday setting of a ‘high density retail environment’, becomes the backdrop for a strange adventure.
152 ‘shoppers’ experienced this specially commissioned version of ‘Wondermart’, in it’s first UK showing in 10 years, reflecting on a renewed appreciation for supermarkets and their significance since the pandemic.
