Growing Interdisciplinary Practices

Photo Credit: inFORM by the MIT Tangible Media Group and ATLAS faculty, Daniel Leithinger and friends I just spent a couple of wonderful days at the University of Colorado, Boulder as a member of the advisory board for the Atlas Institute. Atlas describes itself as an "interdisciplinary institute for radical creativity and invention." They seek to synthesize design and technology to amplify innovation in engineering and the arts.

I am passionate about interdisciplinary practices and am always looking for ways to be of service in growing cultures of abunda

Our website is live and will be getting more and more interesting as the weeks go on, check it out here:​ Livable Futures fosters creative, collective thinking and doin

Mobilizing the Archive

"A flow of information is generated by bodies in motion; this becomes data once it is recorded and stored, by ourselves or by others, either with or without our consent and technologies felt like a beacon to inner states, making them vulnerable to detection, tracking, recording and analysis.
