Together with Manu Luksch, Mukul Patel directs London-based Ambient Information Systems, where they have been developing investigative tools, responsive environments and participatory processes since 2001. Patel’s arts practice is strongly informed by the music of North India and 1960s conceptual practice. He composes extensively for contemporary film and dance (Isaac Julien, Bayerisches Staatsballet, Ballet de l’Opéra de Lyon); his writing includes two film scripts voiced by Tilda Swinton (Faceless, 2006; Dreams Rewired, 2015) and an acclaimed children’s book on mathematics (We’ve Got Your Number, 2013). He founded the think-tank/creative lab/production studio emergence. Currently, he is investigating ethical issues around AI and the algorithmic management of human societies.
