Art + Technology Lab: Documentation

Inspired by the transparency of LACMA's original Art and Technology Program (1967-71), the Art + Technology Lab employs a practice of openness and dissemination. While the original program’s 76 artist projects were thoroughly documented in a near 400 page report, the Lab’s contemporary approach is ongoing and adapted to the digital realm. Here is documentation of the Lab’s artist projects and public programs including code and data, essays, event and lecture transcripts, images and video, legal documents, project websites, proposals, reports and more.
