Whatartist is a research and design studio, based in Los Angeles, founded by Aaron Bocanegra in 2001. We merge art, design, and technology to tell stories, create experiences, and develop custom tools. Our strength is our ability to solve diverse problems and consider entire systems to take an idea from research, through production, to distribution.
With a background and fine art, photography, and filmmaking, and interactive media, we are versatile and capable of realizing media art projects of all scales. Our photography studio is capable of every format and field.
Our studio can design, develop, and manufacture custom software and hardware tools to meet your needs in the arts, science, and technology. All our work is based on the principles of the open source community and creative commons.
Our approach to interaction design is driven by research and system theory; we develop an information architecture that meets each individual projects needs, using contemporary design, implementing a branding experience that reaches your target audience.
