We decode the social effects of media to put their power to good use.


As more of daily life flows through and occurs within media, media is gaining unprecedented power to shape consciousness and culture, and new information dynamics are emerging. Harmony Labs exists to understand the new information dynamics and put them to work to strengthen democracy.  

Here are answers to questions frequently asked about our work. Have others? [Feel free to get in touch]

What is it you do?

Harmony Labs decodes media influence and attempts to track its influence at scale. We operate at the intersection of media, data and society in an effort to strengthen civil discourse and democracy.

What does that mean?

We explore media from production to consumption in order to better understand its effect on society. We investigate how content is created and distributed, how information flows through contemporary media ecosystems, and how it is absorbed, processed and acted upon by various publics.

How does that work?

We operate in two separate but interrelated areas that let us launch tools and develop projects that allow us to explore and experiment with media’s effects on society.
