Open(Art) Fellow Nortd Labs is an international research and development studio founded in New York City by Addie Wagenknecht and Stefan Hechenberger in 2006. Nortd generates work in the area of art, architecture, and system design. Nortd is defined as a collaboration based studio of creative thought that engages science, art and design. Their open source hardware has been built and used by thousands of people, labs, hacker-spaces and universities worldwide. We believe that people should collaborate globally and build locally.
