As part of our commitment to accelerating innovation and encouraging the development of new perspectives and new markets, we are delighted to launch our first project working with the Open Data Institute (ODI).
Hybrid Landscapes is an exhibition of recent work by eleven pioneering artists whose projects use, respond to and subvert digital technologies in surprising and unexpected ways. As lived experience plays out simultaneously across natural, built and networked worlds, new perceptions and perspectives are created.
The eleven artists work in a range of artistic mediums – from photography and sculpture to software and code – and each has their own area of research. They are unified by an approach that offers new ways to imagine, inhabit and locate citizens within emerging hybrid terrains. Together their works consider some of the key social and cultural questions we might ask ourselves about emerging digital cultures, products and applications, offering complementary and alternative views.Find out more

Digital culture is integral to digital business. It is about an approach to the application of technology – not just the tech itself. Digital culture is about iteration – being open to disruption and learning fast from failures. It accepts that innovation may come from unexpected quarters, and that working with artists helps open business minds to creative possibilities.
