The Technology department at Pioneer Works enables technologists to identify as artists, and artists as technologists. Our technology labs connects artists and community members to new forms of expression including building virtual environments, 3D modeling and printing, physical computing, and other practices that lie on the cutting edge of technology and art. Our mission is activated through public programs, classes, and through collaboration with artists-in-residence.
