— Frequently Asked Questions
WHERE CAN WE VISIT THE ARCHIVE?
Unmaterialised does not have a physical library open to the public. However, we organise public showings of selected artefacts at different institutions throughout the year.
IS UNMATERIALISED WORK FACTUAL OR FICTIONAL?
Our work is based and dependant on facts, fiction is used to emphasise viewpoints and relationships between overlooked evidence. We position ourselves within the same practice of documentary fiction (Docu-Fiction).
HOW ARE UNMATERIALISED CASES CATEGORISED?
Our research is organised into Two Divisions (Research and Reenactment), Four Stages with Three sub-sections in each stage:
FORMAT : Narrative / Belief / System
ACCUSATION : Omission / Void / Inaccuracy
CONTEXT : Unapproved / Alternative / Speculative TIMELINE : Past / Present / Future.
WHAT IS ARCHEO-ACOUSTICS?
Archeo-acoustics is the recovery of sound from objects and spaces. In the context of Unmaterialised, we use a forward-looking perspective of Archeo-acoustics to design artefacts/props to recreate the public stagings of our research.
ARE THERE ANY RESOURCES I CAN REFER TO ABOUT YOUR PROCESS?
We are currently preparing literature to accompany all of artefacts.
Until then introduce your students to Unmaterialised™ work by contacting us with the subject title: “INVITATION” to discuss bespoke workshops and presentations. For further details, visit the Work With Us.
CAN UNMATERIALISED BE COMMISSIONED TO UNDERTAKE RESEARCH?
Absolutely, as an agency, we focus on investigating political influence, impact and consequences on the shaping of narratives, beliefs and systems through omission, voids and inaccuracies. We accept commissions from a variety of institutions and organisations.
HOW CAN I SUPPORT UNMATERIALISED?
You can support Unmaterialused through our LAB by donating to specific agendas. Visit Support to see our developments.
HOW CAN I CONTRIBUTE TO UNMATERIALISED’S RESEARCH OR ARCHIVE?
We believe in collective intelligence. As a result, we created the O.V.I (Omission, Void & Inaccuracy) a platform for Institution and community researchers to submit their research-led doubts.
HOW CAN I WORK WITH UNMATERIALISED?
Unmaterialised projects offer a lot of opportunities to get involved as a volunteer, whether in the design, writing, or installation and management of the show. Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills, gain useful experience and meet new people. For full details, see the Work With Us section of this website.
