circa 1.5 hours, 2016
The storytelling tour took place in the Rotterdam neighborhood called De Lombardijen, located on the outskirts of Rotterdam. While walking through the neighborhood, parts of a fictional audio diary from the year 2150 were being played on an old cassette player. The diary , recorded to a man called Sander, chronicles the current situation of the neighborhood, which,by then has been converted into a human habitat for the elderly. He also talks about his love for everything old, the current state of the EU (which morphed into the NEU* in 2050), and the dog gangs roaming the streets of the Lombardo Biotoop.
