The Anthill Social is the website of Tom Keene (cv), an artist and researcher who investigates the role of marginal and often obscure technological objects that construct, transform and amplify the social relations of everyday life. These objects have consisted of municipal databases, systems of administration, wireless protocol, algorithms, individual electrical components, mobile devices, cloud servers, automated vacuum cleaners and biological sensors. Through these objects, I research technological histories, build contraptions and performs live experiments. My practice-based approach probes a technological agency that mediates our actions yet exists outside of a designed intent.
