Kai Wu Studio, jointly initiated by the Media Lab and the Research Network for Philosophy and Technology, is an interdisciplinary program that supports artistic innovation. There will be two editions per year, during which time participants will receive three months of studio time, as well as artwork funding. Every participant will be provided with appropriate interdisciplinary collaborators, theoretical and technical support, flexible studio space, and basic technical equipment. The chosen participants are devoted to breaking down existing disciplinary frameworks, activating traditional technologies or finding opportunities for new technologies, developing value exchange models for all things, reflecting on anthropocentric creation, and providing alternative visions and proposals for the digital future.
