The SMARTlab team operates across genres, disciplinary and cultural boundaries. It aims to create ethically and socially responsible media, art works, and to inform the next generation of artist-made technology tools. The team holds a ‘universal design’ concept at heart: designing for the segments of society whose interests and needs are least served by ‘off the shelf’ technologies. The aim is to create projects that will stimulate further development and new market.
The SMARTlab team includes live artists, performers, dance and movement specialists, visual artists, filmmakers, photographers, sculptors, textile experts, fashion designers, poets/writers, composers/musicians, sound artists, VR engineers, programmers, game designers, interface designers, urban planners, architects, policy analysts, and specialists in e-business. All the work is collaborative and enables sustainable development, social change and community well-being.
