This project is about mapping Beirut city using mobile video recording and driving through the streets of the city to present a specific idea or message in the way we see it. The mapping intends to show the basic touristic points of attraction in Ras Beirut area and the ease of transfer between them. It highlights the most famous and traditional streets for tourists.
The streets are alive With the sound of generators Ah ah aaha And when power's back The water pumps Ah ah aaha The streets fill my ears With the sound of traffic Ah ah aaha My ears are shattered By every car horn ... every horn, every horn I go to Beirut When my heart is lonely I know I will hear What I've heard before My heart will be blessed With the sounds of Beirut And I'll sing once more.
An amazing overview of Beirut during the day and night
