Living in Naples is like living in a short circuit. Naples is a futurist and surrealist city. Naples is a complex system. Naples is pulsating and rotating, it is noise and music. To understand it you have to cross it on foot every day. This video is a virtual walk through the city, from Poggioreale to Posillipo, from Scampia to Piazza Garibaldi, from Via Caracciolo to Pignasecca. Among the many European cities Naples is a glitch, unpredictable, out of the rules and any standard. This is Naples dirty noize tour.
The video was created by recording a walk in Naples using Google Street View. Video recordings and his video data and audio data were then “altered” thanks to improper use of software for editing text and audio.Dom Barra
