SWAMP (Studies of Work Atmosphere and Mass Production) is the collaborative effort of artists Matt Kenyon and Douglas Easterly with Tiago Rorke. Their work focuses on critical themes addressing the effects of global corporate operations, mass media and communication, military
industrial complexes, and general meditations on the liminal area between life and artificial life. SWAMP has been making work in this vein since 1999, using a wide range of media, including custom software, electronics, mechanical devices, and living organisms.
