Invitation for Participation!
Welcome to Synchroni-Cities!
Travel one trail to many places.
Ever tried to make it to a friend following his instructions? »Go there… turn left… turn right… hey look up it’s me in the window…« Ever had the feeling that the path so clear to your friend was in fact very very ambiguous and you could reach several different endpoints following the very same trail of instructions?
Make a choice on every corner.
This is exactly what SYNCHRONI-CITIES is about. This project is bringing together the multiplicity and cultural diversity of different places. It is based on the idea of international exploration, dialogue and unity.
Find familiar areas in different cities.
This is a kind of game which is shaped as an urban exploration quest based on the idea of creating »synonymous places«. It gives urban communities the opportunity to engage in an intercultural dialogue that simultaneously stresses upon identity and openness.
Show your point of view.
So pick a trail. Follow it, and take some pictures or even videos on your way. Upload it, compare them to trails done by others and wonder how people could be in all those different places following the very same instructions. Rate the trails you like. Your trails will be rated, as well. Win a prize! Then explore more trails.
