Dictaphone Parcel is based on a real sound recorded with a dictaphone traveling secretly inside a parcel. As the hidden recorder travels through the global mail system, from London to Helsinki, it captures the unexpected. We hear a mixture of abstract sounds, various types of transport and even discussions between the mail workers. The animation visualizes this journey by creating an imaginary documentary.
Dictaphone Parcel was awarded the Passion Pictures Prize in London, in February 2010.
