Reco(r)ding CripTech documents the creative, interdisciplinary processes of six artists from the disability community in their art-and-technology residencies with the CripTech Incubator. The resulting archive will be fully accessible on the Ground Works online platform. Our working process emphasizes voice, agency, and aesthetic access, and is based on principles of disability justice. This project supports the artists’ in their evolving practices, captures the experience to inform future access-centered artmaking and archiving, and centers diverse ways of knowing and instantiating knowledge. We expect Reco(r)ding CripTech to contribute to a paradigm shift in our understanding of “research” by redefining who produces knowledge, how they do it, and how that knowledge is represented.
