Join Handi and Mika in a workshop of abstract character making. Practice drawing yourself as an abstract reflection. (looking in the mirror). What colors, shapes, patterns reflect your inner self? By making shapes and patterns we will create reflections of ourselves that will be presented on a collective stage. Everyone’s images/shapes will be collected in one final image that will be exhibited at Overkill festival. Anyone can join this workshop, no design skills needed. We will work with our hands, interact and share our reflections (spiegelbeeld).
Little note: One thing we want you to do beforehand is think of your favourite song, we will make an amazing playlist for our workshop!

Unknown Cloud Forming transforms the everyday technologies that mediate our digital existence in a radically different way and then repurposes them as tools to reach another level of collective experience. This nomadic artwork will evolve until 2057 constantly mutating alongside political, technological and environmental climates.
An event of the Cloud is preceded by an online rumour that it is a channel between the life worlds of human, non-human, geological entities and life forms. Similar to a flash mob, the Unknown Cloud forms through the outdoor gathering of strangers. ‘Unknown Cloud’ relies on the perceived dualism of reality and artifice generated by the collaboration and imagination of a temporary community.
You may encounter the Unknown Cloud on social media platforms or hear about it being programmed in an upcoming festival. You download an app which directs you to gather in a physical location, within a limited time window, at dusk. If enough people gather, they will form the Cloud in the location: a square, a park, field or on a height over the city. As soon as you run the experience, your device ceases to be a smartphone and becomes a bi-directional sensory extension to your body.
By following the choreography of the artwork, participants are not only using technology as a bio-mimetic device to immerse themselves in the lifeworld of other creatures on earth, but they are drawn into an interdependent collaboration with each other to form a superorganism, 'listening with their hands' they spread out beyond the borders of their own body gradually transitioning into the collective.
