Collusion is a playful, experimental agency in Cambridge operating at the intersection of arts, technology, and human interaction. We create ambitious, disruptive, immersive works that consider the impact of emerging technology on society, inviting public engagement & interaction. Our mission is to build an international profile for the Cambridge area as an R&D centre for interdisciplinary arts & technology collaboration that engages artists/creatives, academics and technologists to generate work that could only have been produced here.

Collusion has commissioned five amazing artists from across the UK to produce large scale technology-themed works for a major public showcase in 2019. The showcase, which will take place in Cambridge is the final phase of the three year in_collusion programme.

Selected from more than 120 submissions, artists Above&Below, Adham Faramawy, Crowded Room, DDBC and Jo Lawrence have been chosen for their unconventional artistic practices, creative experimentation and their capacity to engage with some of the biggest technological issues of the moment.

Each will work with Collusion over the course of 2018 as part of an enhanced period of research and development to devise new works relating to one of three themes: artificial intelligence, data culture, and virtual/mixed/augmented reality.
