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

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

We commission internationally renowned artists and artists in residence for our headquarters in London, for other organisations and galleries, and public spaces. Our art programmes and partnerships have reached hundreds of 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. You can browse our archive here.

We intend to expand the programme to work with more artists and partners, and grow our reach as we explore network culture, code and more innovative ways to create with data.

New calls for commissions are announced on an ongoing basis.
