We are working towards a world with equitable access to knowledge, where thoughtful tools and interventions help us play with complexity and make better decisions, and environmental and social issues are centred and addressed with careful urgency. WHAT'S NEW

If you have a project you'd like us to collaborate on or help you with, just get in touch. We work in lots of different ways:

  • Research projects - we often collaborate, and help with grant applications.
  • Fellowships - we can be the host organisation for a Future Leaders Fellowship.
  • Commissions - we often do commissions, like software, hardware, exhibitions, workshops and events.
  • Teaching - we regularly do guest teaching for universities all around the world.
  • Other project bids - we can lead or collaborate on projects that aren't research based, for example for Arts Council and National Lottery calls, and can support people to put their bids in.

We're making a new version of the Farm Crap App system for farmers in Argentina, together with Rothamsted Research.

Algorithmic Pattern

UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship hosted at Then Try This, on how ancient and traditional approaches to pattern-making can enrich contemporary creative technologies.

Organised Atoms

An invitation to experiment with the minerals of Cornwall. Can we find what we need in discarded mine waste to create noisy electronic instruments with semiconducting crystals?

Social Microbes

Social Microbes is a collaboration with Dr. Elze Hesse. We curated a series of funded residencies that took place in 2023, and will be running an AccessLab in January 2025.


Open source air pollution sensors with on-street data visualisation, that can be left in public places alongside roads or in play parks, and used for local campaigning.
