DR&R with videoclub piloted an online implementation of the Rules and Regs development model. Two artists working in digital art were 'in residence' online for two months, developing new work in response to rules designed to interrogate their artistic practices.
Throughout the programme artists posted about their experiences on the DR&R blog:

At the end of the residency, I have ended up here: Neighbourwhos? A prototype for making the neighbours (and neighbourhoods) visible.

And here we are, neighbours, copies and market, alltogether in a joyful embrace.
Participating artists developed new work over a nine-week period in early 2011. After artists agreed to participate, rules were devised in response to their practices and announced at the beginning of the development period. Both artists worked to the same set of rules and created new work in response to these rules.
DR&R took place online, using the web as a creative platform and tool. The final outcome of the project are web-based final artworks or works in progress, accessible to the public to experience / see / interact with through a website / online means.
DR&R is primarily a development opportunity for making new work, rather than an exhibition or showcase; the primary goal is to explore artistic practice. During the development period artists were supported by R&R Director Seth Kriebel and videoclub curator Jamie Wyld.
DR&R with videoclub was the pilot online implementation of the Rules and Regs development model. Public access to the artists creative processes was highlighted, with artists asked to keep public blogs and post work-in-progress.
videoclub produces development and exhibition opportunities for artists working with film, video and digital practices; providing opportunities for the public to see, experience and engage in discourse about artists work. videoclub works with a range of organisations to show artists work, and has often worked in partnership to deliver its programmes of work, including working with White Night Brighton and Hove, Northwest Film Forum (Seattle, USA) and A Wall is a Screen (Hamburg, Germany). Artists we have shown include: Ben Rivers, Semiconductor, Laure Prouvost, Mat Collishaw, Gary Barber and Daria Martin. For more information on videoclub, please visit: www.videoclub.org.uk
This project was a co-production of videoclub and Rules and Regs and is managed and curated by Seth Kriebel and Jamie Wyld.
