Multispecies nomad collective and independent artistic research bureau founded in Mexico City in 2013. Our current lines of research are focused on the use of sound and Artificial Intelligence to understand the bioelectrical and chemical signals of different living organisms and its geometrical patterns as a nonhuman form of communication. For this purpose we’ve developed a collection of experimental research and educational tools we call Ontological Machines. Our work is deeply shaped by the Latin American context where precarity enables new forms of creativity and ancient technologies meet cutting edge forms of production. We think about this as a methodology for creation, where one is always looking for the most suitable way to produce in terms of social inclusion, cross-disciplinary practices and open knowledge.
