The Kammari research group includes several interconnected levels of activity: the research group’s long-term research projects, individual research projects and related artistic interventions. Here are the on-going current projects.

Long-term research projects:

Technology as Ideology – A research project launched in June 2018 on technology’s ideological features and its psychological, social and political dynamics. Main coordinators: Niklas Toivakainen & Sakari Laurila. Contact kammari at for more information.

Integrated Sustainability -project at the Kammari Residency – long term research project in the Kammari Residency, combining different disciplines of contemporary art, theory and practical applications, to develop the residency house into a living post-fossil installation and an ecologically sustainable, experimental working environment.

Research+artistic interventions:

The Obscure Subject of Desire – a research project combining performing arts and critical theory. The content stems from research on displaced and narcissistic nature of desire, how the logic of desire works and how gaze affects desire.

The Phantom Limb – theatrical performance project about an intimate relationship between a human and an algorithm, discovering logic of fantasies and the social need for acceptance. Initial premier in the Buffer Fringe Festival, 2018. Director: Sakari Laurila.
