Duality is a blind date between 50 creatives

An art experiment that pairs 25 artists with the anonymous words of 25 writers – removing any trace of context, identity or origin from the writers' words, leaving the artist to interpret and respond blindly.

Removing any trace of context, identity or origin from the writers' words, leaving the artist to interpret and respond blindly.

The result is a truly unique interactive exhibition experience that will leave audiences buzzing with intrigue and dialogue.

To complement the project, Duality founder and curator Shannyn Higgins photographed and filmed each of the 50 creatives in their workspaces for a candid behind-the-scenes portrait series. 


Having produced this project three times and documented 150 artists, the 2019 project was a highlight for Melbourne Writers Festival.
