Chapter 2WO Public Programme
Shock Forest Group (2019) is an international research team consisting of architects, cartographers, linguists, coders, urban planners, sound makers, biologists, designers and engineers. It is an experiment in open research, where the research categories surface as the research develops. It is also an experiment in alternative education, a classroom without a teacher, where learning emerges as a product of polyphony.

On October 25, we welcome Egyptian artist Aya Metwalli for a peformance in the exhibition space.
During this Improv night, Aya Metwalli & Nicolas Jaar will activate the reflectors in the installation creating an ever-changing environment of interlinked reflections and feedback chains. Retaining the Energy, but Losing the Image consists of rotating reflectors that capture and emit sound and light. Don't miss out on this hallucinatory sound experience!
Aya Metwalli is a singer / songwriter, composer and producer. Influenced by both Egyptian pop music and renowned classics she listened to while growing up, she creates "strange sounds coming out of synthesizers and drum machines”. Her music can be described as experimental pop or avant pop. Next to musical performances, Metwalli has been exploring different art disciplines such as dance and theatre to continue bringing performativity into her live music shows.
