Documentation of the ongoing collaboration with Michael Murtaugh and Martino Morandi on the ’sponge’, an ecosystem of tools to index, link, and rewrite these digital materials to tell (new) stories with Constant activities.


Sponges, the members of the phylum Porifera (/pəˈrɪfərə/; meaning “pore bearer”), are a basal Metazoa (animal) clade as a sister of the Diploblasts. They are multicellular organisms that have bodies full of pores and channels allowing water to circulate through them, consisting of jelly-like mesohyl sandwiched between two thin layers of cells.

Digital snapshots, audio recordings, screen grabs, video clips, radio programs, posters, publications, mindmaps: for 20 years dribs and drabs of digital detritus have washed ashore the various servers of Constant.


The warpplayer is a performative setup and warks through various ‘warps’ and ‘wefts’.


A spongy chronology, stringing together all activities and visual documentation logged on Constant’s website from 2003 until now.

Warp + Weft

Warp and weft are weaving terms, which Constant uses to weave stories about and in-between different projects. A warp refers to the thread stretched on a loom. On the Constant website, warps are extensions of projects, often ways to navigate to and through documentation, media and notes. The weft is the thread that runs between the warp threads with the help of a coil. At Constant, wefts are thematic stories that establish relationships between different projects.
