Artwork Description: Bit T‚l‚f‚rique took the public on a ?touristic? trip inside the Jounieh cable cart. Through interactions with audience members, the journey uncovered narratives that aimed at looking, from high above, at Jounieh with a critical eye. When faced with a traumatic situation, some people are able to get out of their own bodies and watch themselves from above as a way of distancing themselves from the trauma. Building on this idea, Dictaphone Group invited the audience to get out of the city and observe i from the top of the mountain. Perhaps by being able to re-imagine the city, we will be able to survive it.
