Soft Detours is a computing culture studio.

We re-trace the origins of creative computing, software-based art, and network culture.

Our studio offers a large selection of early computing hardware and software. In addition to internal projects, we frequently invite outside artists to create new work that embraces the design constraints of primitive computing.

We accept donations of computers, peripherals, spare parts, software (including packaging), printed materials, and ephemera. We're also seeking early computer artwork (paintings, animations, texts, 3D)—all submissions will be cataloged and published online with attribution. Thank you!
