In this piece, we discuss our experience of working as an art collective. Through more than a decade of artistic practice we have developed practices of self-organisation. The habits and management of our collective also reflect our relationship with contemporary art and technologies. We have named this modality of work Post Fail: a mode of making and thinking about art, and our hyper-connected lives more generally, as always failing, and necessarily disappointing our expectations (IOCOS 2015). In this text, we intend to describe and reflect on these practices, and explain how the notion of Post Fail could provide a pathway to rethink some of the approaches
to contemporary media art.
