Join us for a talk by Hyphen Labs on Tuesday 10/10 at 10:00am!

Hyphen-Labs is an international team of women of color working at the intersection of technology, art, science, and the future. Through our global vision and unique perspectives we are driven to create meaningful and engaging ways to explore emotional, human-centered and speculative design. In the process we challenge conventions and stimulate conversations, placing collective needs and experiences at the center of evolving narratives.

Bios:

​Ece Tankal is a Turkish born designer and new media artist based in Barcelona. Ece is interested in exploring interventions and interaction related to bodily, spatial and temporal concepts through mixed media installations, virtual reality experiences and speculative design. Trained in architecture, her approach is to place the viewer as a natural extension of the micro and macro topographies created, expanding and stretching the reality we currently occupy. She is one of the co-founders of Hyphen-Labs, and interaction studio operating at the intersection of art and human interaction to craft experiences utilising emerging technological platforms.

Ashley Baccus-Clark is a Brooklyn-based Molecular and Cellular Biologist and multidisciplinary artist who uses new media and storytelling to explore themes of deep learning, cognition, memory, race, trauma, and systems of belief. She is the Director of Research at Hyphen-Labs, an international team of engineers, scientists, architects, and artists creating at the intersection of art and emerging technology.

​Aguilar y Wedge is a Latinx structural engineer and artist synthesizing design and technology to develop immersive – transmedia experiences.  Inspired by the translation of concepts to material expressions visualized through an aesthetic framework of science fiction, futurism, and surrealism her work expands on the principles of emotional design.  Carmen is a co-founder and director at Hyphen-Labs, an international studio specializing in the design of physical products, mixed reality experiences, and sight specific installations that influence the evolution of digitalism and technology. By exploring themes of speculative design, humanity+, the environment and social issues through the context of architecture, robotics, virtual reality, fashion, computation, new media, music, and smart materials Hyphen-Labs is pushing the boundaries of futurism and the morphing global dynamics.
