Talking Apple was created with the students of the primary school of Gols as part of the Field Experiments project, curated by... The red apple, a very present element in the collective imagination of adults and children, sometimes even overused, was used as an easy pretext to collect thoughts, points of view, and memories on the reality of the town from the perspectives of the youngsters.

Seçil Yaylali asked them to make up stories that had to do with a red apple, without setting any other rules and recorded their voices of 38 stories.

Talking Apple has thus become a wooden red apple installed in the garden of the Gols school that plays the stories of its students as soon as someone approaches it.
