TESTCARD was a programme of artists moving-image that takes the format of a 24-hour TV variety show which included a combination of live and pre-recorded material to draw on the history of radical and public broadcasting, open publishing and transmission. The first TESTCARD event took the model of mid-late 1990’s and early 2000s popular TV variety programmes like ‘MTV’, ‘Diggit’, ‘TV with Ray Cathode’ and ‘Live and Kicking’, to create a single streamed event that counters the culture of on demand content and engaged in the history of artists' DIY broadcasting and transmission projects including TVX/London Art Lab, Paper Tiger TV,  Radio Anti and Convex TV.

Reactor took the graveyard slot(s) at either end of the broadcast. Viewers could turn on, tune in and drop out with our TV TESTCARD, fall asleep to our soothing tunes, allow the messages to wash over them, and wake up for the punchline!

Here, the Gold Ones flatter
Bonington Gallery
EXHIBITION: 26 March-21 May 2022
PREVIEW: Friday 25 March, 5-8pm
PERFORMANCE: Saturday 7 May, 10-4pm

It is happening again.
Here, the Gold Ones were.
We’ve heard that before.
But this time it was flatter.

So, as we were saying.
It’s an original story.
No, this is an origin story.
Everyone already knows this.

Everywhen, here and there.
This is what we always said.
Mis-shaped and not in proportion.
As though seen for the first time.

Digital Residency
IMT Gallery

Across 2022 we're part of the IMT Digital Residency with Orphan Drift, Reece Griffiths & Ellie Towers, Bijan Moosavi, I. Nakhla, Frankie Roberts, and Rieko Whitfield.

If you want to delve behind-the-scenes and experience the processes involved in the artistic practice of seven artists/artist collectives, check out IMT Gallery to receive monthly 'art releases'.

The residency is coalescing around key threads, built in collaboration with the resident artists and narrated by IMT, including embodiment, fictioning, site-specificity and psycho-geography, and will develop a range of online and physical events across the year.

A taste for the old school is now settling in under your skin and you stick on a video, a trailer invites you to follow the Gold Ones. Reactor’s alternative histories bring new mythologies and approaches to living, you look around your apartment imagining interior decor, perhaps even a kitchen refit. Then a very self-assured voice offers you the chance to boost your luck.

Performance Prediction

Reactor and Plastique Fantastique have been talking about producing a performance fiction for some time.

We/they (Reactor/Plastique Fantastique) said that there would be a get-together to discuss this performance friction at some point in the future.

We (Reactor) called them and said now might be the time.
