Compiler is a platform for conceptual digital art, curation and critical practice – in institutional and alternative spaces. Led by Tanya Boyarkina, Oscar Cass-Darweish and Eleanor Chownsmith, the group’s artistic and curatorial practice investigates socio-political challenges in digital culture.
Compiler explores the possibilities of digital art, learning and curation as a process of discovery through synaesthetic experience of technology. Their aim is to create accessible works and events through which audiences of all ages and abilities can delve deeper into digital technologies that shape day-to-day experience. Topics covered include cyber security, surveillance and climate emergency. Projects often expand sensory possibilities afforded by our collaboration with technical objects and virtual worlds: drinking security software, dancing html or moulding a viral object.
