This course will focus on critically exploring the internet and software for its social and political impact, while learning the technical tools to intervene in purposeful ways. Instead of simply accepting and consuming the technologies presented to us, we'll critically investigate the intentions and effects of these technologies, and ways they can be harnessed or exploited for meaningful social change.
New Data as Culture exhibition brings the inner workings of code and craft to the ODI’s Shoreditch offices
From raves fuelled by computer algorithms, 'hacking' woollen jumpers and reviving primitive Inca data storage, the new Data as Culture exhibition exposes how modern and traditional crafts are built with code.

AMAE/DE PINTO 58 (+1) INDICES ON THE BODY PROJECT.
63 variations on the body— Open call for Composers. 2nd edition.
Deadline October 31st, 2016
After the launch of the project on Soundcloud, featuring Jean-Luc Nancy’s recorded voice reading his treaty 58 Indices on the body, it was time to turn the text into music. For that reason, and in anticipation of the making of a documentary about the whole project, we opened a first call for composers to create a background track for each index/statement – written and recorded by the philosopher. It has been a success with more then 60 composers from all over the world sending us interesting compositions.
As we don't have completed the entire set of indices/statements we open the present new call to complete the 63 recordings.
Candidates will join our Soundcloud page where they can choose a statement, or more than one (up to a maximum of three), and develop a musical accompaniment while also sharing their track with other artists.
