Our mission is to apply art and technology to create positive social impact through education, civic engagement, and public programs.

We use digital tools to create art and design projects that benefit society. We test and scale projects with high impact potential, teach digital tools to support artists and technologists, and inspire our community by promoting meaningful new work.

We apply the promise and inspiration of digital art to a broader social context. Our programs are transforming cities into creative outlets, applying technology to solve problems, and shaping how art is created and consumed in the digital era.

Sirens is a project which explores the aesthetics of information on sound. Initially based on multiple ways of analysis in various types of recordings, this project has been developed and produced by applying numerical and quantitative data from periods of economic panic and major stock market crashes in history, on tracks commissioned from other sound artists and musicians. Through Sirens, the flow of data was made audible by drawing the boundaries and possibilities in working with numerical elements, since the potential is relentless. These sequences of numbers revealed a huge variety of structures, which could be applied on the commissioned tracks. The ultimate goal was to perceive the multi–substance of the data that conquers the world of stock markets by applying it on sound. Data and information provide an indelible element which sits comfortably alongside words and it enables us to apply them on certain types of music, which circulate among texts on-line and off. The outcome is a sort of soundtrack of these moments of financial crisis, as a musical alchemy, where sounds are emerging from numbers and human art is still blossoming despite the economic and social downturns. Like music is based on maths, so Sirens is our contemporary muse, emerging from numerical data and inspiring humans through difficult times. At the same time, the mathematical universe is encompassed by the infiniteness of arts and creativity.
