Columbia DSL featured in new NEA field study

Our work at the Columbia DSL is featured in a new field study by the National Endowment for the Arts entitled “Tech as Art: Supporting Artists Who Use Technology as a Creative Medium.” We’re honored to be in the company of such amazing artists and organizations pushing at the edges of tech and art. We’d like to take a moment to thank everyone who participated in Sherlock Holmes & the Internet of Things and Frankenstein AI. Both projects are featured!
