A year of connections between India and the UK

A Year of Connections between India and the UK.

DUET

DUET is an ambitious piece of work about finding space for reflection, expression and connection in our daily lives. An app, an interactive web platform and a series of outdoor public artworks across cities in India and the UK, Duet allows for multiple levels of engagement. DUET is at once personal and public, global and local.

DUET is a collaboration between INVISIBLE FLOCK (UK) and QUICKSAND (India).

THE APP

Build a unique relationship with someone, on the other side of the world.
DUET anonymously connects participants, inviting them to exchange details of their lives by answering one question a day through an app.
Prompted by DUET, a participant gradually builds a picture of their partner and their surroundings through shared messages.
