Across Syria, many gardens conceal the graves of activists and protesters who adorned the streets during the early periods of the uprising. Gardens Speak is an interactive sound installation containing the oral histories of ten ordinary people who were buried in these Syrian gardens.

Each narrative has been carefully constructed with the friends and family members of the deceased to retell their stories as they themselves may have recounted it. They are compiled with found audio that evidences their final moments.
