Instants Mobiles (Mobile Moments) is a series of nine "living" sound photographs that retrace the audible memory of the TNT* - Manufacture de Chaussures in Bordeaux (France).

The TNT was once the factory of a shoe manufacturer. Today it has been transformed into a cultural center, but some elements - architecture or furniture, are clear reminders of the history of this space.

In anticipation of major building modifications to come, the TNT asked sound artist Guillaume Laidain to establish a sonic image of the building and its activites. Sound recording took place during the 2009/2010 cultural season. Each month, from September 2009 to June 2010, a “sound photograph” was broadcast on the TNT website, offering a sonic and visual wander. The project concluded with a sound installation of 400 speakers in the theater's main hall, on which all the recordings made during the season were played.
