For a while now, I have sought out the work of artists and designers who are working on interesting critical projects related to digital data, particularly personal data (as this is one of my main research interests). I have discussed some of this work in several of my publications, including my book on the sociology of the quantified self.
A recent tweet asking the Twitter ‘hive mind’ whose work they knew about generated many more additions (thank you to those who contributed).
Here’s a list that I have subsequently put together – I am sure it is by no means comprehensive, but at least it’s a start!
Autonomous Tech Fetish
Institute of Human Obsolescence
Critical Interface Politics Research Group
Poetry in Data
The Center for Genomic Gastronomy
Grow Your Own: Life After Nature (exhibition)
