The private and the public at railway stations
Wolfgang Dorninger reimagines free hugs in Brixton - he writes: "ad 1.: An old big railway station always brings huge spaces with overloads of reverb in my mind. On the recording there is nearly no space so fed my cliche and opened up a huge space at Brixton Station. ad 2.: Communication on a railway station is in most cases very private. "Come back soon", "I miss you already", "Say Laura I love her", ..... And what can I hear on the recording: "free hugs"! So I kept "free hugs" and went around the private to create a space for those who did not get a hug when the left."
