Compiler is a platform for digital art, curation, and critical technical practice, implemented in institutional and alternative spaces. It is led by Tanya Boyarkina, Oscar Cass-Darweish, and Eleanor Chownsmith.

The group’s artistic and curatorial practice investigates socio-political challenges in digital culture, where the possibilities of digital art, curation, learning, and research are explored as part of a process of discovery through synaesthetic technological experiences. They aim to create accessible works and events through which audiences with different levels of technical awareness can delve deeper into digital technologies that shape day-to-day experience. Topics covered include cybersecurity, surveillance, and environmental conditions.

Tanya Boyarkina is a Russian-born London-based artist, curator and cultural producer aiming to demystify complex technological processes through playful participative formats.

Oscar Cass-Darweish is a digital practitioner working between Birmingham and London – using artistic enquiry to explore human-technical relationships in the space of hardware/software/code.

Eleanor Chownsmith is a London-based artist who works in school education outreach. Her practise explores community arts in the context of digital culture.
