MAL Resident Rachel Stuckey, “Fortuna 500: An Inside View (trailer),” (2017).



In 2015, I rebooted the Media Archaeology Lab residency program. The program has since attracted an international cohorot of researchers and artists who have produced publications and creative works from their time in residence.

Examples include Rachel Stuckey, who in 2017 created a video artwork about a fictitious software called ‘Fortuna 500’ (see the trailer above); Sarah Rooney, who in 2018 developed a set of open source crochet instructions for recreating two of the lab’s iconic computers (see below); and Grant Bollmer, who produced a MALware technical report—the lab’s publication format for short research papers—on the lab’s E-Meter (read it here).
