Unfixed was a creative research project involving ten Australian and UK disabled artists investigating the intersection between arts, disability and technology.

Artists spent two weeks exploring the notions of the ‘fixed’ and ‘unfixed’ body through the lens of art and creative technology during their first residency in Adelaide (November 2015), and then a week developing and prototyping new project ideas at the Pervasive Media Studio in Bristol (September 2016).
