An audiovisual representation of the comparison data of coastal towns creates a separate reality, bringing faraway places together based on their proximity to the world ocean. The piece draws inspiration from Samuel Beckett’s «Krapp’s Last Tape.» Interviews of people of various ages, residing in towns situated along the Black Sea and the North Sea coasts, are the basis of the installation. Interviewees of different ages represent the towns of Shabla and North Berwick. Each age — e.g. 10, 38, 77 — has its own unique spokesperson, who responds to only one question: how was the past year for you? The indefinite nature of the question encourages interpretation on the part of the interviewee, constructing a literary image of the participating locality.
