A video documentary that was commissioned by MU and was shot on location during STRP Festival 2011 and the Playful Post Digital Culture symposium. Timeless focuses on questions of identity and experience, time and place in a post-digital era. This video opens questions that sparkle our brain.

‘The digital settles in as background. We remember less and query more. Our identity play would be considered schizophrenic in the last century. We have more friends than ever before yet know new frontiers of isolation. The quantification of our experience haunts us in the form of a persistent history. And we are distracted more than we ever knew possible. These circumstances are paradoxically a description of the near future and a diagnosis of the current state of affairs. The truly timeless is redefined – it has transcended that which is classic; it has become that which is never finished.’
