Packpacking the Electronic Textiles Studio
1. September - 30. November 2016
This residency is about developing a final version of the "PIFpack" – a proposal for an electronic textiles workbench packaged into a backpack. The design is inspired by observations and experiences from a week of hacking during PIFcamp 2016. The residency is carried out with weekly open studio days, a workshop and a documentation of the process in order for anyone else to hack and pack their own backpack.

Time's Up Residencies-in-motion
1. January - 31. August 2016
Transiency is a residency in motion – aiming to collect and amalgamate ideas, experiences and dreams, from those who are involved and/or influenced in alternative practices of transporting goods. Fair transport is the buzzword, slowly becoming more relevant as climate change gets closer to our everyday life, the destruction of the oceans becomes more obvious and the facade that, "business as usual" can continue, crumbles.
Explorations leading into the Journey
1. September - 30. November 2015
Northern Norway, Northern Russia
A series of Dark Ecology residencies are ongoing during the second half of 2015.
