Since its inception, the ODI’s Data as Culture art programme has aimed to engage diverse audiences with artists and works that use data as an art material.

People to talk to about Data as Culture

Copy That? yellow logoCopy That? Surplus Data in an Age of Repetitive Duplication: the ODI’s Data as Culture research and partnership season for 2019–2020. It encompasses an exhibition and separate but interconnected installations, performances and events.

The ODI’s Data as Culture art programme engages new and diverse audiences with work by artists who critically and materially explore data, code and network culture.

We commission internationally renowned artists to make new works, take part in exhibitions or undertake residencies at our headquarters in London, and with our cultural and corporate partners.

Our art programmes and partnerships have reached thousands of people, on and off line. Artworks have included a semi-sentient vending machine, data collection performances, photographs, networked artworks, pneumatic machines, live-coding performances and ‘stitch-hacked’ jumpers.

We are always interested in working with new people. Calls for artist commissions are announced on an ongoing basis. Please contact us with partnership enquiries.
