We Make Money Not Art is a blog that focuses on the intersection between art, science, and social issues. Created in March 2004, we-make-money-not-art.com investigates the work of artists, designers, and hackers who are using science and technology in a critical, socially engaged way. The blog is a personal one; it features interviews with artists and scientists, book reviews, reports from media art festivals as well as accidental explorations of contemporary culture at large.

Objectives of the blog:

  • to present the many encounters of art and science in an approachable yet rigorous and critical way.
  • to include ‘media art’ in a broader cultural discussion.
