Institute for Infinitely Small Things

Waltham, MA, USA

The Institute for Infinitely Small Things conducts creative, participatory research that aims to temporarily transform public spaces and instigate dialogue about democracy, spatial justice and everyday life. The Institute’s projects use performance, conversation and unexpected interventions to investigate social and political “tiny things”. Their membership is varied and interdisciplinary.

For this project, the Institute for Infinitely Small Things was led by CATHERINE D’IGNAZIO, a.k.a. kanarinka, who is an artist, educator and software developer. She is the former Director of the Experimental Geography Research Cluster at RISD’s Digital + Media MFA program and currently a graduate student at MIT’s Center for Civic Media. Her artwork has been exhibited at the ICA Boston, Eyebeam, MASSMoCA and numerous public street corners around the world.
