Two Worlds is a project co-organised by NeMe, the Cyprus University of Technology (School of Fine and Applied Arts) and the Department of Audio and Visual Arts of the Ionian University focusing on some of the of issues related to migration. The project commenced two years ago by way of discussions between Iannis Zannos, Yiannis Christides and Yiannis Colakides which initiated a framework that eventually expanded into an interactive sound installation, where the voices of migrants and displaced people are the protagonists.
The recent global developments such as the current rise of militarised violence in 51 United Nations member states has catapulted the number of forcibly displaced people, now exceeding 59,500,000 – almost three times more to the numbers in 2014 being the highest number ever recorded. Within this tragic context and existential urgency, Two Worlds has now become an, albeit small, contribution toward the compassionate understanding and support of displaced people.
Two Worlds will be accompanied by a series of workshops on SuperCollider and related interactive arts tools by Iannis Zannos, as well as a seminar moderated by Antonis Danos on October 31st, at the Pefkios Georgiades Auditorium of the Cyprus University of Technology with short talks by Antonis Antoniou, Kleitos Papastylianou, Yiannis Christides and Iannis Zannos.
