About

The IED programme is a program: a code, a kind of DNA, a blueprint for being. It’s a process by which, using the greatest possible toolkit, we are generating radical projects and perspectives, to meet a radically changed, and still rapidly changing reality. We are students of complexity and emotion, investigating meaningful patterns of emergence from shared (eco)systems and diverse data sets.

In the midst of global crisis, students in IED have engaged with the micro and the macro in order to situate human being more conscientiously in the world. We share an imperative to form and reform realities through compelling informational experiences. And as you’ll see in the work shared here, the outcomes are far from predictable. Our IED DNA is, after all, mutative and hybrid, ever-strange.

As the spaces we work in have contracted, the work itself has expanded: we are continually interested in understanding and renegotiating boundaries between the imagined and the real. We are engaged with the nodal touchpoints linking art, science and technology that can map rich networks of huge scale.

As we looked to meet our reality head-on, topics that have emerged among the students' works include collective imagination, changing structures of identity, grief, loss, the climate crisis, the lives of objects, the importance of memory, living through a pandemic, the future of education—and much more.
