W/o/r/k

A ritual for our times.

Through your phone, the voice of another world is channelled. Obey, collaborate and you will be set free. An experience for hundreds of people at a time.


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:
