Country: The Netherlands
There are no borders on earth in the world of Radio Garden.
Radio Garden is a free online application designed and developed by The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision together with the Dutch designer group Studio Puckey. This application allows you to explore an interactive globe filled with the past and present of more than 8,000 radio channels from all over the world.
It also provides historical radio broadcast of the French radio station speaking both for the French to the British before WWII, the announcement of the first woman in space from Russia during the Cold War era and city soundscape of Kolkata, India in 1980’s.
The Jury was convinced that this application gives us a trans-border experience with radio archives and the use of sound footage, which celebrates human communication.
