Computational Culture Lab

Co-Convenors: Associate Professor Katrina Sluis / Professor Mitchell Whitelaw / Dr Baden Pailthorpe

The Computational Culture Lab works at the intersection of theory, practice and policy to investigate the politics, aesthetics and applied potentials of post-digital culture.  Located at the School of Art & Design, we work in partnership with contemporary art and cultural heritage institutions, industry, NGOs and an international network of researchers spanning art, media and cultural studies, humanities and design scholarship. 

As artists, designers, curators and theorists, we generate high impact public outcomes which address the increasingly automated, networked and algorithmic conditions of contemporary culture. Collectively, we seek to understand how computational culture is to be generated, recorded, collected, curated, exhibited, performed and archived, and how it can support social and cultural change.
