Foreign Objects is a research studio and cultural consultancy that works with artists and institutions engaged with emerging technocultures. Originally formed at MIT, it was founded by information engineer Agnes Cameron (UK), artist Gary Zhexi Zhang (UK, CN), interface designer Kalli Retzepi (GR), and architectural designer Sam Ghantous (LB, CA).
Taking the shifting networked environment as its native context, Foreign Objects creates websites, installations, field reports, simulation models, and other critical tools operating at the intersection of software and society. It seeks to build a sustainable model for collective work between artists and technologists, one that perceives technology not as a solution but as a tool for understanding and imagining novel questions.
