The Anthill Social is the website of Tom Keene, an artist who critically investigates the social effect and influence of contemporary communications technologies. The following projects reflect a body of work that incorporates a wide working practice, including: participatory & fine arts practice, web development & design, creative programming, graphic design, video production, electronics engineering and audio production.
I am currently working in collaboration with Furtherfield, a media arts organisation based in London, and have recently been appointed as one of the directors of the Remakery a community led recycling initiative to build workshops and maker spaces within an abandoned car park beneath a housing Estate in Brixton.
In September 2012 I completed an MA (Interactive Media: Critical Theory and practice), during which I recorded research on a collaborative MA Blog. For my final research project "Uncertain substance", I investigated the social entanglements of the the Viterbi Algorithm, a hugely influential algorithm that has been key in the development of contemporary wireless communications systems.
