The visitor approaches common looking lockers to deposit something. At a closer look it becomes apparent that they differ from ordinary ones: they store sounds originating from our close environment, some of them edited previously, others recorded on-site. The Baggage Room invites the public to store one’s freight, one’s own ideas and memories, by speaking into the microphones fixed in the cases.
