LOT: Experiments in Urban Research

LOT is a new collective that was formed in the summer of 2007 with a group of seven artists and urban researchers—it has now almost doubled in size. The group, located in Toronto, shares a commitment to develop research tools that employ art to create new epistemologies. We are also committed to experimenting with new forms of exhibition that construct different situations, new interdisciplinary and intermedial frameworks. LOT (League of Tangents) produces small urban interventions (probes) to discern the phenomenologies of everyday life—such experiments are often mixed with theorizing, the process of thinking with and through theory to understand the present moment.
