With a focus on realising the potential of richly interactive text, we work to produce experiences, foster dialog and work to enable further developments in a rich ecosystem of ideas and implementation potential.


We host live dialog with an annual Symposium, which has been going for over a decade, special guest presentations and weekly research team sessions.

The outcomes of the Symposium is published annually in a book series.


We build software in order to experiment and experience different futures of text, currently with the Author & Reader software for macOS, as well as WebVR experiments.

The outcomes of the software experiences is published and available for general use.


We further designed and implemented the Visual-Meta approach to rich and robust metadata to enable anyone to build more connected experiences outside of their own system, contributing to a richly connected information environment.
