Experiments in Between

Garden Street: Upstairs

I’ll cover work engaging neuroscience and interactive art in tandem in the laboratory, museum and in-between.


Adam is a Master’s student in the Fluid Interfaces group. His work aims to augment human awareness, translating advances in neuroscience into design of interventions and experiences. He believes technology can show us parts of ourselves that remain otherwise invisible, opening doors to introspection, wellness, and wonder. Adam has a background as a neuroscience researcher at MIT’s McGovern Institute studying mindfulness meditation and mind-wandering, and as an artist-scientist at the Marina Abramovic Institute. His work has been shown at Cannes Film Festival, SXSW, VR Sci Fest, SESC Pompeia, Red Bull Station, and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Adam helps lead two communities here in Boston: MIT Hacking Arts and Consciousness Hacking. Current projects include haptic wearables for attenuating auditory hallucinations in schizophrenia, microscopic Virtual Reality adventures inside the human body, and dream control and capture in the liminal space between wakefulness and sleep. He is an alumni of MIT’s Gabrieli Lab and an affiliate at Harvard metaLAB.
