ABOUT D.A.T.A.:

Dublin Art and Technology Association
D.A.T.A. Group

The Dublin Art and Technology Association (DATA)
is a group formed with the intention of
promoting, exploring, discussing, and exhibiting
art and technology in Ireland and the world.
Based in Dublin, DATA is built on the idea that
collaboration between artists, musicians,
technologists, and academia is the key element in
creating a rich cultural environment for the
dialogue and conception of technological art
practices. We aim to create an informal space
where art and technology can meet and allow
people from multiple backgrounds to come
together, collaborate, and explore new directions
and art practices.

DATA is dedicated to both showcasing the work of
local technologists, musicians, and artists using
technology as well as providing a meeting point
for the intersection of these disciplines.

Our aim is to encourage collaboration between
group and non/group members and support an open
forum for ideas, practice, and presentation. All
forms of art and tech are welcome for showing at
the group events - from interactive work to
net-based projects to digital video to audio
projects to theatrical performances to
installations - and we will be asking for an open
call for people to present their projects at the
various events and venues around Dublin.
