Worldwide mobile performance

We! The temporary nation.

Piotr Wyrzykowski’s and Echo Ho’s project Temporary Nation is a platform for organizing group and individual performative sessions. The work draws on active participation of its audience who become its co-creators through the use of an app designed for the purposes of this performance. Once the app has been installed, particpants’ smartphones turn into light- and sound-emitting audiovisual gadgets that can be operated by their users through particular gestures or choreographies. A joint performance of un unpredictable symphony turns a group of strangers into a temporary community.
