SIFT is a collaborative design practice based in Ann Arbor MI led by Adam Fure. Their work injects digital logics into fertile material, cultural, and disciplinary grounds. Exploiting all tactics and technologies, SIFT excites old substance through new treatments; composing new aesthetic mixtures from the matter at their fingertips.
