"EBN works to harness the power of multimedia audio–visual technology into the most effective electronic behavior control system.
EBN's techniques involve a collection and analysis of massive amounts of randomly recorded audio and video television programming. After a careful screening internal process, the choicest bits are chosen for inclusion in compositions using internal digital sampling and video editing in their own production facility."

"Vision: We believe that through creative and critical engagement with practices in art and technology people are inspired and enabled to become active co–creators of their cultures and societies. ...
Mission: Our mission is to co–create extraordinary art that connects with contemporary audiences providing innovative, engaging and inclusive digital and physical spaces for appreciating and participating in practices in art, technology and social change.
Who We Are and What We Do?: Furtherfield was founded by artists Ruth Catlow and Marc Garrett in 1997 and sustained by the work of its community as the Internet took shape as a new public space for internationally connected cultural production.
Furtherfield is now a dynamic, creative and social nerve centre where upwards of 26,000 contributors worldwide have built a visionary culture around co–creation – swapping and sharing code, music, images, video and ideas.
A Not–for–Profit Private Limited Company since 2009, Furtherfield has received regular funding from Arts Council England since 2005 which supports artistic programmes with a local, national and international reach as well as innovative outreach projects and the development of new forms of infrastructure and digitally enabled participation and engagement in the arts.
Digital Communities for Co–creation: Through our online platforms for review, discussion, reflection, sound exploration, conversation and audiovisual mash–ups, specialist and amateur artists, designers, activists, thinkers, and technologists come together to cultivate open, engaging and stimulating contexts for making and thinking."
