ABOUT THE PROJECT
W/O/R/K is an extraordinary collective experience that explores what hundreds of people in one room can do together using only their smartphones.
A parody of popular team-building exercises and inspirational videos that help us become better, W/O/R/K is the product of a society bent on mastering love and compassion for the benefit of greater economic gain.
The experience uses a software system built by the Dutch group The Smartphone Orchestra - which enables multiple sound channels to play across hundreds of smartphones at the same time in the same place. In W/O/R/K, the audience is cunningly invited to sing together - following instructions played to them through their own phone.
Be a cog in a beautiful, harmonious machine.
In 2017, IDFA DocLab invited Anagram to collaborate with the Dutch group the Smartphone Orchestra to develop this mobile experience and bring the audience together in a beautiful and original way.
The Smartphone Orchestra continue to tour the piece internationally, and it has visited:
