Decimal Lab explores our proposed digital lives. It studies digital technologies as they emerge and are proposed for the future and the consequences that this evolution spurs. It is a research lab that concentrates on personal media, that people carry, pocket, wear, implant, and consume in order to understand how this transformation to very personal tech is affecting life, society, culture and the arts. Research creation projects take a critical media approach intending to provoke meaningful dialogue and reflection.
