Nungu is a new media arts space experimenting with the convergence of text and technology. Designed as a collaborative space, the Nungu Lab is an experiment in progress.
[nungu's resume] Currently based in-between Bombay India, London England and wwwdot, nungu is a fluid digital entity, an autonomous cultural space, an alternative media site in a constant state of construction, deconstruction, reproduction and re-assemblage. A fluid collective engaged primarily in cultural and media orientated research, nungu views the network as a kind of vast extension of the urban, as the material interpenetrated and reproduced informatically, the ultimate expression of a culture drunk on data. It is within this context of an overmediated public sphere, in the vast data and media scapes, that nungu locates itself, attempting to make sense of the intersections of roots and wires, tracing the points at which embodied and the disembodied meet. Underlying these electronic explorations is a belief in the social potentialities of networked systems as autonomous zones engaged in cultural critique, in the importance of alternative media and sovereign entities existing on the fringes of state and corporate systems. Coupled with this is the belief that art and technology both, should be accessible 2all.
