The Unstitute wants you, whoever and wherever you are, to participate in a new online project entitled Vidiot; a word-blend accidentally created by one of our manifesto-writing machines of ‘vidi’ & ‘idiot’, possibly meaning ‘simple video’.
The Unstitute would like to ask you to send us your eyes. You don’t need to cut them out of your face though. Just video both of your eyes for 1 minute on your cell phone and upload it to vimeo.com, and send us the link or alternatively forward us a video file (max 500mb). The Unstitute is going to construct itself a new wing out of your eyes, built on the architecture of watching. It will be a unique place you can go when you want everyone to look at you, or when you want to feel you are being watched - a sort of vulgar Panopticon for the internet.
Just send an email to [email protected] containing the link to your eyes, and write ‘participant’ in the subject header. Then we’ll know it’s you.
The Unstitute offers a virtual environment for creative experiments and self-empowerment over archaic creative institutions. Consider applying to the Participation Programme at The Unstitute.
