    Since 2010 social media researcher Bénédicte Jacobs (°1964, BE) & media artist Laure-Anne Jacobs (°1967, BE) form the artist duo LarbitsSisters. The work of the Brussels-based artist duo is situated at the crossroads of art, technology, political and societal issues. Their collaboration grew out of a shared fascination on new media, merging research and artistic practice onto projects in which concepts such as traceability, network analysis, algorithms, automation, data processing are explored. Their artistic practice focuses on the creative drives and patterns in digital media. Central is the friction between public and private, online and offline; between the unbridled faith in technological progress and everyday life. In 2011 LarbitsSisters founded ‘Larbitslab’ aimed at bringing together artists and scientists around societal issues brought by our networked societies. The specificity of Larbitslab lies in the methodological approach, which combines observing practices, media analysis and research on technical and societal implications of our contemporary networked society. Their work has been presented in several national and international exhibitions and symposia.
