The following day, participants were first randomly arranged into three teams — each team featuring at least one artist, creative technologist and Tate Collectives member — before being set their challenge. The core principles of the experience were orientated around:
- (random): the beauty of an unpredictable output
- co: the value of a collaborative and open process
- jams: the joy of creative improvisation (inspired by jazz)
With this foundation, each group set to work exploring three key questions:
- What is the role of the museum in the Internet Age?
- How is the concept of youth being redefined and challenged in the context of Internet Age arts?
- What can we learn from 500 years of British art?

After the day's collaboration, the next logical Jen and Leyla came to Barcelona to share their work at Tate as part of IAM Weekend 16, and we took the project one step further with a workshop on the final day of the Weekend called RE: Mixing the Museum.
