The Carbon Defense League (CDL), founded in 1997 in Pittsburgh PA, is a media arts and engineering practice and writing collective with no central location. Membership is open and comprised of both visible and invisible members from Australia, Spain, Holland, Germany, United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States, from disciplines such as design, architecture, geography, fine art, robotics, computer programming, and critical theory. CDL creates projects that raise discussion at points of confrontation as part of a splintered practice with no central theme. CDL has shown work, participated in panels, and led workshops throughout North America and Europe and has received awards from media art festivals and organisations such as Rhizome.org, New York; Memefest, Slovenia; and Transmediale, Germany. CDL is part of the Hactivist Tactical Media Network, which was founded online in 1999 as a way of showcasing the other diverse activities of collective members.
