Moving Target Collective

is rooted in an interdisciplinary and practice-based research approach, meaning that it combines the backgrounds of its members in sociology, industrial design, art and computer science as well as their academic and pop cultural interests for a broader scope. Our goal is to build cool things which reflect our stance in feminism, design, hacking and theory. The collective is a space where members contribute their individual skills to create artwork with a critical approach to AI. It’s a space for sharing skills and learning new ones, for growing knowledge and empower each other teaching and learning about technology, design and society. It is a space for speculating about critical and feminist approaches to AI.
