I am a collaborator and co-founder of the Institute for Boundary Interactions (IBI), an interdisciplinary research collective that uses science, technology, art and design to explore the complex connections between people places and things.
We are a group of artists, designers, architects, technologists and creative producers who formed recently out of a collective interest in conducting practice lead research into the complex relationships between people, places and things. A large part of this is how technologically constructed spaces and things mediate our individual and collective practices and experiences.
We draw influence from recent scientific, technological and cultural developments in order to conduct practice based research through a mix of public art and critically engaged design. Rather than contributing to scientific or technological innovation, our principal objective is to explore the cultural and socio-political implications of these fields.
We want to create prototypes and interventions that probe aspects of these and provoke debate around current socio-technological trajectories.
