A custom phone app links you and someone you’ve never met, as you simultaneously use the app to record a personalised walk for each other. You’re in it together, but apart, crafting each other’s experiences, special moments or surprises from a distance.
How will you shape your companion’s journey? What do your choices tell the other person about you? At the end, you can choose whether to meet in person and decide: “Are We the One?”

Are we the One was commissioned as part of In Your Hands —a new series of artworks and installations that invite audiences to create experiences mediated through hand-held technology. In Your Hands was commissioned by Arts House through the Australia Council’s New Digital Theatre Initiative.
