BOM leads projects in art, hacktivism and open culture through live projects, commissions and research partnerships. We support creative collaborations between artists, ethical hackers, scientists and technologists. Our collaborative workspace is freely available to BOM Fellows and Residencies for their important research and development.

BOM is dedicated to the free culture movement and to art that asks important questions about future technologies. Our current areas of research include:

  • Open source technologies
  • Open data
  • Open science / DIY biology
  • Ethical hacking
  • Creative activism
  • Disruptive media
  • The Internet of Things
  • Interactive and immersive technologies
  • Genetics
  • Cyber Feminism
