* Deep Lab. Published 2014-12-23 by Deep Lab and the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, 2014


= a 240-page compilation of reflections on digital culture, the post-Snowden Internet, and cyberfeminism.: Created in five days by a dozen women, this book represents the capstone to Deep Lab, a residency hosted by the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry in collaboration with CMU’s CyLab Usable Privacy and Security Lab."


"Deep Lab is a congress of cyberfeminist researchers, organized by STUDIO Fellow 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. They worked collaboratively at the STUDIO in an accelerated pressure project, blending aspects of a booksprint, hackathon, dugnad, charrette, and a micro-conference. The outcomes of this effort include the visualizations, software, reflections and manifestos compiled in this book; an album of ten lecture presentations, the Deep Lab Lecture Series, which can be viewed in the STUDIO’s online video archive; and a forthcoming twenty-minute documentary film featuring interviews with the Deep Lab participants."
