Last autumn, Bowie shared an early version of his latest album, ★ (pronounced Blackstar), with the creators at InstaMiniSeries in order to create a series of visual representations of it. The channel, which focuses on creating episodic programming via 15-second Instagram videos, announced the result of this collaboration on Monday; "UNBOUND: A★ InstaMiniSeries "

"Each episode of the series is sure to capture the imaginations of all who experience it," the creators said in a statement on Instagram, "[It] will undoubtedly lead to endless speculation and discussion of meaning, metaphor and intention."

The 16-episode series will star Rookie Magazine founder Tavi Gevinson and actress Patricia Clarkson. In their Instagram post, the creators said their focus would be less on creating a "literal, linear narrative," and more on showing their own visual representations of ★.

The series premieres 25th February, with new episodes released every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Watch the trailer for the series below.
