DELTA_ARK STUDIO

Delta_Ark Studio creates digital installations for groups seeking to enact new forms of local ecological stewardship, cooperative ownership and decentralized governance.

Delta_Ark has created work on behalf of Occupy Providence, Building #13 Squat in Rhode Island, the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project,Biome Arts, Wetland, and Swale.

HOW WE DO WHAT WE DO

Delta_Ark interviews group members and scrapes social data, then remixes this information into poetic prose that is displayed alongside a custom-built animated logo.

These site-situated literature-heavy logos inform outsiders about the group's identity and values while also providing a description of what it is like to engage with their social and political practices.

WHO WE ARE

El Kalinov (Founder): El graduated from Brown with an MFA in Digital Literature, was an Eyebeam-Buzzfeed Fellow in SF and practices a semiotic mercerenary lifestyle.

Petrus (Studio Manager, Writer): Petrus graduated with an MFA in Poetry from Brown, and is currently writing a novel about a brothel on Mars.

Milan KS
(Artist): Milan graduated from the NYU Game Center and currently produces games about the nature of thought.

Han Han
(Developer): Han was a developer for a variety of Bay Area tech companies and currently is creating software for distributed collaboration.

Son Kit
(Experience Consultant): Kit is getting their graphic design MFA at RISD, and is developing the canon of Korean-American Science-Fiction.

WHAT OUR PATREON FUNDS GO TOWARDS

All patreon funds go to Delta_Ark staff. Currently, the studio is supported by the founder's other business. If Delta_Ark is able to increase its patreon presence, Delta_Ark will be able to pay its artists more, which means they can work more hours, which means the work quality/quantity will dramatically improve without Delta_Ark having to compromise its political integrity. Essentially, you are helping us create a better product while helping us remain free of undue political influence.
