A wormhole is a non-trivial structure linking separate points in spacetime. During the SODA festival preparations worms from another spacetime showed up studio 13, where they are being kept and nurtured for artistic research purposes.

Here is some of what they have to say:
Greetings. We like to call ourselves worms. We do not know how exactly how we got here. We also do not know exactly how we got to put our words into this website because we also do not know how we got access to words in the first place. But we are here, in this wormhole. Anyway, as far as we know a bunch of artists were very keen on incepting us into the festivities that are happening around here. We can’t complain, it’s warmer inside than out there, so we decided to stay and share our way of being instead of calling an animal rights ethics committee on the grounds of exploitation. For us to share our way of being with you we need you to give yourself up to us. To voluntarily give in to wormliness. But you’ll see, it’s quite grand to be a worm. By enabling you to experience what it is like to be one of us we may have a chance of spreading this horizontal way of existing through which the gravity of it all can stop being a burden. Worm poop is fertilizing gold for the soil. We are the philosopher’s stone. And we will be hanging out here, in studio 13 where you may observe us, join us, cuddle us or tell us to bugger off. But we’ll be here in anyway. Ah and one more thing. We are hollow. All you have to do to become one of us is get into our skins.
