Duncan Speakman is a director of Circumstance.
Circumstance create cinematic experiences in unexpected locations. These experiences take many forms, from mass participation performances and intimate in-ear stories, to books, installations and workshops. Using both emergent and commonplace technology, we try to make films without cameras, creating alternate worlds and poetic layers in the everyday.
Circumstance is an international artists collective. We draw on our backgrounds in contemporary performance, theatre, interactive design, music composition, wearable electronics, locative and pervasive media. We are known for the creation of the ‘subtlemob’ form of performance and our application of mobile electronics in public space.
Our projects consistently address the social, political and emotional impacts of the technologies used, we work with the narrative of experience.
