SEEMAWORLD is an immersive, multi-channel realm and streaming facility. It’s comprised of the mimicry of multiple amenities and services—which act as portals to a specific aspect of SEEMAWORLD. An interactive installation, it shows born-digital artefacts alongside digitised works of traditional media.
As a colony of SEEMAWORLD, BERWICKWORLD transports viewers firmly into the cinematics of the cinema and magnifies Fan Labour as behaviour, thought and form.
Performed through the artist's own cosplay, the world premiere of NO BLASPHEMIES (2021) sits inside the virtual theatre of BERWICKWORLD. This is a satirical music video, which foreshadows and alludes to Youterus - an unfolding high-fantasy, mixed-media narrative, which is framed against the system of caste.
Within SEEMAWORLD, NO BLASPHEMIES (2021) looks to Vidding as a framework and falls under Seema's interpretation and fascination with Fan Labour (reclaimed within SEEMAWORLD as: Fan Labia).
Using portals to travel between SEEMAWORLD and BERWICKWORLD, these virtualities open gateways into the future of viewership through gameified performance, world-built environments and floating space.
As part of BERWICKWORLD, viewers are also treated to the fanfictional stylings of writer and critic Zarina Muhammad - whose own contribution of Fan Labour is upheld by the characters, landscapes and customs existent inside the narratives of Youterus.
