Virtual Walk Tbilisi
The virtual walk Tbilisi is the second project in the series of Virtual Electrical Walks and was realized in autumn 2022
The team photographed and recorded acoustic and electromagnetic sounds at 15 different places within the city, from tourist hotspots to hidden corners, from leisure parks to construction sites, from underground stations to new public buildings.
Tbilisi is the largest city in Georgia and its capital. Because of its location on the crossroads between Europe and Asia the history and architecture of this town is a special mix of different styles throughout the centuries.
The multiple cultural, ethnic and religious backgrounds characterize the places of this virtual walk including numerous building sites which contribute to further urban changes.

Click on any of the red circles on the map above to start your Virtual Walks Tbilisi. When a panorama has loaded, you can drag your mouse or swipe to look around and explore the space — or wait five seconds until auto rotation is starting. All spaces contain multiple sounds. Headphones or a connected speaker system are highly recommended!
Right-click to switch to fullscreen mode.
Every panorama contains two hotspots that link to the next location. It is up to you in which direction you do the virtual electric walks. You can also click the left/right arrows to navigate to the next/previous panorama.

If no sound is heard, it is sometimes helpful to switch to the next panorama using the arrow control at the bottom of the screen and then jump back again.
If this does not help, check the autoplay settings.
In Firefox under privacy & security / permissions / autoplay, “allow audio and video” should be set.
