Duality is an art experiment that pairs 25 Melbourne artists with the anonymous words of 25 Melbourne writers – 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.

The works and the creative pairings are kept a secret to all; only to will be revealed to the participating creatives, press and public at Duality's launch during the Melbourne Writers Festival on Friday 30 August.

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. These portraits will feature in a limited edition coffee table book and an exhibition, where all words, art and photographs can be shared with audiences.
