Deep Lab is an ongoing congress of cyberfeminist researchers, organized by Addie Wagenknecht to examine how the themes of privacy, security, surveillance, anonymity, and large-scale data aggregation are problematized in the arts, culture and society. During the second week of December 2014, the Deep Lab participants—a group of internationally acclaimed new-media artists, information designers, data scientists, software engineers, hackers, writers, journalists and theoreticians—gathered to engage in critical assessments of contemporary digital culture in an accelerated pressure project, blending aspects of a hackathon, charrette, and a micro-conference.

We worked collaboratively at the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. More information about this project is available here.

Deep Lab is an ongoing collaboration.
