We create sociotechnical interventions to better allow people to collectively shape the world around them.

Our research integrates techniques in data mining and visualization to connect people with information, social computational techniques to connect people with one another, and cultural and artistic techniques to help unlock their human potential. Our lab consists of computer scientists, artists, architects, designers, and educators, and our aim is create loosely coupled, decentralized social systems that foster healthier real-world environments for living, learning, and making at scale.
