UNKNOWN FIELDS DIVISION PROJECTS

A Journey through the Dark Side of the City
Multiscreen film installation, 2016
Across the last eight years Unknown Fields have undertaken thirteen expeditions through the distributed territories that lie behind the scenes of the contemporary city. The nomadic studio travels with documentary film equipment, hidden cameras, drones and sound recording gear to capture the extraordinary conditions that the networked city and its associated technologies has set in motion. These landscapes have been assembled together to form a road movie through Unknown Fields’ reimagined city, a continuous structure that stretches across the earth.

The Unknown Fields Division is a nomadic design studio that ventures out on annual expeditions to the ends of the earth exploring unreal and forgotten landscapes, alien terrains and obsolete ecologies. Each year we navigate a different global cross section and map the complex and contradictory realities of the present as a site of strange and extraordinary futures. In these strange landscapes we develop speculative fictions, films and animations.

Here we are both visionaries and reporters, part documentarians and part science fiction soothsayers as the otherworldly sites we encounter afford us a distanced viewpoint from which to survey the consequences of emerging environmental and technological scenarios.
