The DCI is a device for supporting, coordinating and extending research on digital cultures.

We’re interested in how technologies recalibrate the texture of lived experience. Today informational and computational architectures exert increasing force on the social, cultural, and political aspects of everyday life.

The cloud is our field of research; New Zealand/Aotearoa and Asia more broadly are our operating site.

We hope to foster a local community of researchers, academics, artists and others interested in these issues, as well as developing an international network of other organisations and institutions working in this same space.
