Quicksand and Invisible Flock
Curated by Akshay Roongta
Venue: Sadhana dell Arte
Time: 11:00 – 20:00
Audio portraits of messages will be built in a sound installation that allows the audience to wander and find conversations. The installation will include recordings of messages across India and the UK, layered with sounds from different cityscapes across both countries, to create an intimate and immersive artwork. The installation will require a large space or multiple small spaces that can be navigated, so the audience can travel to different spaces, triggering off different soundscapes.
Duet is a collaboration between Invisible Flock (UK) and Quicksand (India), an ambitious digital artwork about finding space for reflection, expression and connection in our daily lives. An app, an interactive web platform and a series of large scale sculptures creating a year of connections between India and the UK, Duet is at once personal and public, global and local.
Every day participants in India and the UK respond to one question via Duet App, gradually building a picture of their partner and their surroundings through shared messages. An interactive web platform – each anonymous conversation adds to the platform in real time, providing a beautiful portal into thousands of global conversations –like an evolving, animated network.
We still need the money to make this happen
