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.

Physis - Fragments 1-9: "de Oratore"

Wed Sep 05, 2012 09:35 - Thu Sep 05, 2013

The Unstitute today announced two new episodes to the video project PHYSIS:


Physis - Fragments 1-9
“de Oratore”
(47 min, 2012)

"Over a period of 4 months, The Unstitute became the object of a series of Obscene Letters which were deemed unfit for publication. The material was sent to a specialist named CADE; a catatonic who never speaks his own mind. CADE was instructed to translate the letters into VideoForm for the purpose of public dissemination."



Physis - Appendix (a)
(7 min, 2012)

"CADE spends almost all of his time studying the effect of decay on the streets of the Borough of Southwark; some say he is a topologist, but I fancy him for a cartographer of sorts. His study is not limited to the streets themselves however, for he also studies the decay of the people who walk on them. No one knows the exact purpose of his work though, because he is a catatonic and cannot share his thoughts. He can always be found in Cafe Reality on the Old Kent Road, where he collates his research."


The Unstitute: Virtual Residency #4 - Olga Koroleva

Wed Aug 01, 2012 19:00 - Wed Oct 31, 2012

The Unstitute continues the series of artists' residences in the Tovarisch (colleague) Rooms

Residency #4:

Olga Koroleva Wa/onderings

1 August - 31 October


During the residency Olga will explore the sensation of deja-vu; from strange situations, bizarre narratives, repetitive motions and serendipitous occurrences along with detailed accounts of deja-vu collected via open-submission which will form a part of a non-linear narrative.


To be included in the project, please send your deja-vu experiences to:


'Jubilee': Concluding Video by Nicholas Middleton

Sat Jul 21, 2012 12:00 - Tue Jul 31, 2012

Could one really believe that the Queen embodies the quality 'majestic'?

The online residency of Nicholas Middleton at The Unstitute is drawing to a close and, on the 31st July, all work will come under permenent erasure.

We would like to encourage you to see the video 'Jubilee' while it still exists, and also to read Nicholas' superb blog in which his research for the video is currently contained.

The Unstitute: Nicholas Middleton Online Residency: 'JUBILEE'

Sat May 05, 2012 10:00 - Sun Aug 05, 2012


Nostalgia is a weapon - graffiti

For the duration of his residency at the Unstitute, Nicholas Middleton will attempt to make a film or film an attempt to make sense of the United Kingdom's constitutional monarchy in the run up to an arbitrary marker in Elizabeth Windsor's ongoing bid to become its longest reigning unelected head of state. This process will be dissected in open and transparent indifference and tiny slivers will find their way online in a half-hearted way.

Once finished the film will be ceremoniously destroyed, which will be documented by an independent invigilator. This documentation will then be destroyed, which is where the process of a snake eating its own tail must stop.

Welcome Receiver of The Eternal Drone!

The Eternal Drone is the infinitely slow sound of the universe, born in the Big Bang with space and time, which it binds together. The Eternal Drone is the ground from which all other sound arises.

Please send your Third Ear experiences, text, drawings, photos, video, or anything else the Eternal Drone inspires you to submit, to tools.and.principles@gmail.com. Video can be from a mobile phone or basic camera, as the intensity and atmosphere of these collective activities are what really counts. Selected footage may be included here or on the Tools & Principles of Transformation on All Levels blog, to help inform and educate other Receivers.
