A World of Service (AWOS)
A platform for performative installations created by Ben Kreukniet and JASSS.
A World of Service (AWOS) is an experimental platform for installations and live performance. Created by Silvia Jiménez Alvarez (aka JASSS) and Ben Kreukniet, each iteration invites experts in their fields to contribute to a constantly transforming world.
A continuously expanding collection of sonic materials, scanned objects and environments defines an ecosystem that morphs between symbolic and abstract expression.
Computer vision techniques are (mis)used to capture and recycle the present, creating a rapid trajectory through bodies and spaces as projections of our inherent value systems.
Within A World of Service, seemingly familiar elements are continuously deconstructed, manipulated and re-transcribed, forming a fluid representation of our subjectivity, how we shape our environment and how it in turn shapes us.
AWOS premiered at Sonar Barcelona 2022, as a resident of Sonar +D.
