Director

Luke Munn uses both practice-based and theoretical approaches to explore the intersections between technology and capital, body and code. His projects have been exhibited throughout Europe, North America, and Oceania. He has written extensively on contemporary algorithmic systems such as Uber, Alexa, Airbnb and Palantir, including his recent book Unmaking the Algorithm. His new project, ‘Under Your Skin’ examines the new quest to render the emotional calculable.

Join Us

While we’re currently just getting off the ground, there are a few ways to join in with the work here.

Masters or PhD student? We’re looking for ways to partner with universities in order to support your work. You can help us by putting us in touch with Department Heads or others who can make this connection.

Postdoc or Researcher? We’re in the process of setting up a visiting scholar programme. If you have funds available and are interested in setting up a mutual residency, please get in touch.

Intern with us: We have several internship positions available for those interested in working with a vibrant, forward-thinking research organisation. From research to publication design, web maintenance and network development, there’s lots to do. At this stage, these are unpaid positions, but provide you with real-world experience and a letter of recommendation at the end of your stint.
