About Signal Culture:
Signal Culture was founded in 2012 by Jason Bernagozzi, Debora Bernagozzi & Hank Rudolph with the idea to create an environment where innovative artists, toolmakers, curators, critics, and art historians who are contributing to the field of media art will have time and space to make new work and to interact with one another. In addition to the residency program, Signal Culture organizes public exhibitions and produces resources for researchers and practitioners in the field of experimental media art as a way to expand support beyond the residency.
