The Institute for Infinitely Small Things 
http://www.ikatun.org/institute/infinitelysmallthings/ conducts 
creative, participatory research that aims to temporarily transform 
public spaces dominated by corporate and political agendas. Using 
performance and conversation, we investigate social and political "tiny 
things". These have included corporate ads, street names, and post-9/11 
security terminology. The Institute markets dissent through its research 
reports in the form of maps, books and videos. This interdisciplinary 
group has a varied and open membership.

iKatun - http://www.ikatun.com/ is an artist-run organization whose
