Welcome to The Unmoving show
- a psychogeographical drift in the matrix
The unmoving show is an open, interactive, performative exhibition. A sort of immanent psycho-navigation made explicit, of what goes on while we do nothing. A framework of unmoving. Since we put ourselves at the center of attention, everything else revolves around us in constant motion. The sun moves across the sky. A dog barks. Your position to a screw in the ceiling is continuously calculated.
Curators: Andy Deck, Bjørn Magnhildøen, Zsolt Mesterhazy.

It is a critique of attention hacking and self-consumption. Psychogeography is redefined through brain research as non-intentional navigation in space and among objects. The exhibition is shaped as a continuous, unpredictable and erratic stream of orientation/awareness based on the works and their metadata/surroundings. The show is open for submissions of works during the exhibition. The scripted framework is also subject to change, adding to the performative aspects of the show.
Interaction: The feed responds to keyboard input. Input becomes part of the output of later sessions of other users. The longer the feed keeps going the more articulate it gets.
The project exhibits in collaboration with The Wrong Biennale, from Nov 1, 2021 to Mar 1, 2022.
We see the works as landmarks in a kind of psycho-virtual navigation, and hope you can see some crass beauty in this
drift, as we do, even if the attraction should lie in its unmoving character. For all its moving, its purpose and result
remain an unmoving show.
