Michael Mandiberg: Workflow

Hacking the Future of Work with Jonathon Keats

Jonathon Keats is a self-described "experimental philosopher" who pursues speculative projects that explore the intersection of science, culture, and design.

Inspired by the spirit of LACMA's original Art and Technology program (1967-1971), which paired artists with technology companies in Southern California, the Art + Technology Lab at LACMA supports artist experiments with emerging technology. Through our sponsors, the Lab provides grants, in-kind support, and facilities at the museum to develop new artist projects. To date, more than a dozen artists from around the world, including Ghana, Ireland, Korea, Mexico, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Switzerland, have received awards through the Art + Technology Lab.

The 2017 request for proposals is now closed. We anticipate issuing our next call in December, 2017.

Project documentation, ranging from code repositories to video archives and project websites, are available here.
