‘Ask cryptographers about the "uncomputable" and they will respond: how much computing power do you have at your disposal? Can you afford to crunch the numbers until the sun burns out?’ - Alexander Galloway.
UNCOMPUTABLE is an experimental project for artists and others, playfully probing computational limits that intersect art, technology, ecology, and justice. The project incorporates:
- the creation of artworks, including installations, sound artworks, videos, experimental interfaces, and instruments.
- the staging of performances, workshops and other pedagogical programs
- the curation and production of events, performances and talks
- writing, publishing and sharing of resources
CREATIVE VICTORIA funding will support the performance program, commissioning works by artists, musicians, and researchers.

- Monica Lim is a Malaysian-born Australian sound artist whose work spans installations, performance art, contemporary dance and screen.
- Catherine Ryan uses performance, sound, text, video and installationto prompt questions and debate about the present social order - particularly about gaps and silences in public discourse where urgent social issues are not confronted, or where the collective political imaginary has proven inadequate to the challenges of the present.
- Established in 2020 by Sean Dockray, James Parker, and Joel Stern, Machine Listening is a platform for collaborative research and artistic experimentation, focused on the political and aesthetic dimensions of the computation of sound and speech
