Data as Culture


The Data as Culture programme is a world class contemporary art programme. We collaborate with artists and organisations interested in working with data, people and network culture critically and materially.

Our projects challenge and expand public understanding of data and how it may affect and reflect our lives. Leading and emerging artists are invited to create new work for a broad range of audiences at the ODI, online and at public venues in the UK and Internationally.

Our art programmes and partnerships have reached hundreds of thousands of people at venues and online. Artworks have included a semi-sentient vending machine, data collection performances, photographs, networked artworks, pneumatic machines, live-coding performances and ‘stitch-hacked’ jumpers. New calls for commissions are announced on an ongoing basis.
