The research of the Institute for Distributed Creativity (iDC) focuses
on collaboration in media art, technology, and theory with an emphasis
on social contexts. The iDC is an international network with a participatory
and flexible institutional structure that combines advanced creative
production, research, events, and documentation. While the iDC makes
appropriate use of emerging low-cost and free social software (ie. peer-to-peer
technologies, blogs and mailing lists) it balances these activities
with regular face-to-face meetings.
