‘This project challenges the conventional unilateral type of communication in Speakers’ Corner, Hyde Park, where ‘Speakers’ stand on
a ladder, either preaching or shouting what they want to say without listening to others.
I introduced a more horizontal form of exchange, similar to an online comment thread. By linking several ladders so multiple speakers’ stand in a close circle and discuss a current news story. My aim is to restore the original function of Speakers’ Corner; a place for discussing and exchanging ideas in public.
