BIO
The Unstitute is an Evolving Interactive Environment which consists of a series of makeshift sites and excavations created in the form of a digital burrow. Built to offer challenges to establishment language and practise, The Unstitute creates and curates multi-media digital projects, manifesto writing machines and anarchic web-design as well as supporting up to four online residencies per year and a monthly video-channel as a part of its ongoing Participation programme.

Each department of The Unstitute's virtual building constitutes a series of movements which proliferate into extensions and entrances, holes and dead-ends, annexes and chambers - never singular, absolute, permanent, profound – always plural, temporary, mobile, superficial.

Click on the links below to catch your last chance to see our two outstanding online residents and their contribution to the virtual architecture of The Unstitute:

Current Residency at The Unstitute:
Spatio-Mnemonic

Iain Rayner

'Neo-Sublime'

Only a few days are left before Iain Rayner's residency concludes at The Unstitute on the 15th April. You can view Iain's latest experiments, comment on his research or download designs for making any number of the objects featured 'Neo-Sublime' in the project yourself.

Is the mind of a fox separate from the landscape it inhabits? The fox builds its den in the soil, its trails crisscross the fields, its footsteps bend the foliage, small plants cannot thrive where it chooses to habitually pass. The hedgerows conceal nests of mice and birds who shelter high enough to evade its passage through the land.

Screening at The Projection Room:
Last chance to see an award-winning documentary by

Silvia Dal Dosso
'The 1 UP FEVER'


Silvia Dal Dosso's remarkable award-winning pseudo-documentary is screening until 15th April.

In the Berlin city everyone is going crazy for a viral new app. Anyone with a smartphone can play a sort of Super Mario Bros arcade game in Augmented Reality and win Bitcoins by playing. One coin corresponds to 0.01 Bitcoins. Citizens' habits are tainted by the game. Coins are hidden all over the city, you can spot them just scanning around with your device, not always they are easy to grab.

The Unstitute continues to offer monthly screenings of experimental videos. This month we have the pleasure of presenting an acclaimed video by

Silvia Dal Dosso
'The 1 UP FEVER'


From 15th March to 15th April

"In the Berlin city everyone is going crazy for a viral new app. Anyone with a smartphone can play a sort of Super Mario Bros arcade game in Augmented Reality and win Bitcoins by playing.

“My aim was to raise questions: Where is this money coming from? Who are the developers of the game? Why do you think they're giving you money? What are they using your jumping, data-roaming, and geolocation-tracking for?”
From an interview with Motherboard magazine

Submissions

The Projection Room at The Unstitute was created to show experimental video art. Works are selected on the basis of their ability to provoke thought, reaction and engagement on the visual, audible and conceptual levels, whether in a positive or negative fashion. Videos are not selected on the basis of technical merit or aspiration to conventional standards.

Successful works will be screened for one month. Applicants may send as many works as they like - if selected, they will form part of a month-long roster. Your video/s will be promoted via international web channels.

If you would like to apply, please send a link to your video/s to theunstitute@gmail.com
