Hi, I'm Agnes ↝
I design, build and maintain software and hardware, sometimes alone but often with friends. I have a particular interest in simulation, distributed knowledge and infrastructural systems. Currently, I work with the Knowledge Futures Group, developing tools for open data curation and sharing, I am a resident artist at Somerset House Studios, and I make up 25% of the research studio Foreign Objects.
If you are an activist group or community organisation looking for technical support, I'm normally happy to volunteer my time. You can get in touch with me at: agnesfcameron at protonmail dot com.This website was last updated on 28/11/21

I ran a short inflatables workshop at Somerset House, where 6 of us spent about an hour turning 3 packs of binbags into a surprisingly large spined snake. We took him out for a walk by the bar later.
