DuetCurrent, Digital, Public art
DUET is a collaboration between INVISIBLE FLOCK (UK) and QUICKSAND (India).
An app, an interactive web platform and a series of outdoor public artworks across cities in India and the UK. Duet is about finding space for reflection, expression and connection in our daily lives.
Duet App invites participants in India and the UK to build a unique and anonymous relationship with someone on the other side of the world, connecting and exchanging details of their lives by answering one question a day. Prompted by Duet App, a participant gradually builds a picture of their partner and their surroundings through shared messages.
At once personal and public, global and local, Duet asks us to reflect and connect with each other anonymously across the world, while exploring questions of identity and personal history.
A collaboration between Invisible Flock and Quicksand. Funded by Arts Council England, the British Council and Leeds Inspired. Co-commissioned by Yorkshire Design Group, Quays Culture, Threshold Studios and Quest Alliance. Supported by East Street Arts, Leeds Bid, Leeds City Council and Unbox.
