Our Library and Archive


Executive Director Debora Bernagozzi and artist Peer Bode looking at prints of video images  during an interview for Signal Culture

Signal Culture is building both an online and an on-site research center to provide our residents with a wide variety of materials. As we grow, Signal Culture will build an archive of work by artists, researchers and toolmakers in the field including artwork documentation, schematics, publications, podcasts and other materials.


You can view what publications and other media we have available in our on-site library at http://signalculture.libib.com/. You can also watch artist talks, a media arts panel and more on our Vimeo page at https://vimeo.com/signalculture.


We also have a media arts interview program where we are producing video interviews with both established historical figures and rising stars in the field of experimental media art. Interviews with Alan Powell, Dave Jones, David Ross, ecoarttech (Leila Nadir + Cary Peppermint), John Knecht,  Kristin Lucas, Peer Bode, Phillip Stearns, Tom Sherman, and Tony Conrad are available in the Signal Culture Interviews album on Vimeo.
