ArtSourced: Call Center aims to explore the dynamics of exchange and transfer intrinsic in call centers to align its possibilities with contemporary art practice. It is a collaborative project that will function as exhibition, performance, meeting space, and social-sculpture in which the process of creative/art problem-solving as a live performance and space that facilitates, documents, and explores the creative exchange between “agent” and “client.”
