The Middle East research group was founded in 2006 by a group of artists, engineers and designers from Eyebeam and beyond to examine the influence of media and  technology on the Middle East and its never-ending conflicts. The group works with the notion that hiding deep under the political differences there is a strong base cultural commonality that has a transformative potential for the region. The Middle East research group attempts to look beyond hatred and propaganda and possibly find new media strategies to rediscover bottom-up agency in the Middle East.
