Graham Harwood (Mongrel)
Mongrel is a mixed bunch of people, machines and intelligence's working to celebrate the methods of a motley culture. We make socially engaged culture, which sometimes means making art, sometimes software, sometimes setting up workshops, or helping other mongrels to set things up.
We do this by employing any and all technological advantage that we can lay our hands on. Some of us have dedicated ourselves to learning technological methods of engagement, which means we pride ourselves on our ability to programme, engineer and build our own software, while others of us have dedicated ourselves to learning how to work with people.
Mongrel sets up strategic alliance’s to expand and contract. Sometimes 50 Mongrels work on a project, sometimes one.
The Core Members are Matsuko Yokokoji, Mervin Jarman, Richard Pierre-Davis and Graham Harwood even though there are many other people associated with the group—Matthew Fuller, Lisa Haskell, Carole Wright, Steve Edgell and Lani to name a few.
