The Daniel Langlois Foundation’s purpose is to further artistic and scientific knowledge by fostering the meeting of art and science in the field of technologies. The Foundation seeks to nurture a critical awareness of technology’s implications for human beings and their natural and cultural environments, and to promote the exploration of aesthetics suited to evolving human environments. The Centre for Research and Documentation (CR+D) seeks to document history, artworks and practices associated with electronic and digital media arts and to make this information available to researchers in an innovative manner through data communications.
The Foundation’s mission is to:
Promote contemporary artistic practices that use digital technologies to express aesthetic and critical forms of discourse;
Encourage interdisciplinary research and, in general, sustain the development of projects calling for co-operation between people from a variety of fields, such as artists, scientists, technologists and engineers.
Make available the results of research supported by its programs.
