i-DAT is an Open Research Lab for playful experimentation with creative technology.
We co-create and share technological prototypes and practices, that push and challenge the boundaries of digital arts and creative media practice. Our main focus is on making ‘data’ tangible, playable and readily available as a material, to generate new meaning and inform participation, audience engagement and innovation in the arts.
i-DAT believes passionately, that it must embrace the opportunities created by digital technologies to be open and collaborative, in order to sustainably co-create social, economic and cultural benefit for society in general and predominantly, for current and future generations of young people.
