(play)ground-less

Werkflow collaborated with artist collective (play)ground-less for their show "Hollow Tongues", installed at Gasworks, London in May 2017.

The collective, consisting of Sarah Bayliss, María Angélica Madero, Ninna Bohn Pedersen and Belén Zahera, worked together to curate and manipulate a virtual space created by Werkflow using cutting-edge web technology to deliver a live virtual reality performance. Viewers were immersed in a world of imagery, video and live streamed audio whilst exploring the multi dimensional space.

In an attempt to reverse the logic of a group show - where works are chosen or produced in order to respond to a previously set idea or topic - (play)ground-less is conceived as an arena to create the material conditions for the exchange and production of knowledge. With a focus on the tension between practice and theory, this exhibition will bring together individual contributions that function as footnotes for a larger collective state of mind.

This project marks Werkflow's first forray into web-based virtual reality projects and ultimately served as a versatile, unique tool to enable story telling and performance without boundaries.
