Abandon Normal Devices over the years has established a programme of research through practice and participation focusing on the areas of New Cinema, Cultural Activism and Connecting Art and Science. Through research projects we create a space for high-level industry based knowledge exchange and wider public engagement, conversation and debate.



Abandon Normal Devices are a leading organisation in commissioning work for digital culture in the UK. Over the past decade, AND has commissioned over 80 works from international artists that have pushed boundaries, engaging and inspiring thousands of audience members both nationally and overseas. After being premiered by AND, some of these works are available to hire.
