To facilitate educational and artistic projects where the internet, data, extended reality, and art converge. We raise awareness of contemporary digital culture and its footprints.
We develop programs and activities that explore and expand solutions to the following foundational statements.
Reconfigure the traditional format of exhibiting tech-centered art that is by nature interdisciplinary and diachronic.
Critically examine the internet as media and the underlying logic of its infrastructure, data management, control, and impact on society.
Close the cultural gap between the received history of art and tech-centered art due to the unspecified nature of the relation between art and technology.
Provide new governance and economic models that support and create art that reflects the issues raised by disruptive technologies.
