SWAMP (Studies of Work Atmosphere and Mass Production) was founded in 1999 by artists Douglas Easterly and Matt Kenyon. SWAMP focuses on critical themes addressing the effects of global corporate operations, mass media and communication, military-industrial complexes, and general meditations on the liminal area between life and artificial life. SWAMP has been making work in this vein since 1999 using a wide range of media, including custom software, electronics, mechanical devices, and often times working with living organisms.
SWAMP was founded in 1999 by artists Douglas Easterly and Matt Kenyon. Easterly is a Senior Lecturer and Program Director of Digital Media Design at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand. Kenyon is an Associate Professor in the School of Art and Design at the University of Michigan in the United States.
