The Soudan Project is made up of six installations that collectively transformed 593 Soudan from an ordinary house into a place of imagination. It opened on June 8th, 2012 and closed on July 27th, 2012.

Room of Whispers is a sound installation exploring the notion of past and forgotten voices as layers of acoustic memories in a century old house. It was made of 6 speakers taht collected sounsd from diffrent part of the house in real-time and projected them inside the room. Visitors were invited to bring their ears close to the speaker to spy on other projects locating in various parts of the house. The entrance to the room was made possible through the backyard, up the ladder through the window.
