About Artbrain and Neuroaesthetics

Neuroaesthetics has generated new tools with which to understand and elucidate the history and the production of art. Through its’ window works of art have been re-sampled to create a productive phylogeny of aesthetic forms, which beyond their primary meaning as art works functioning in the aesthetic field,  can also explain questions that formerly were the jurisdiction of Neuroscience, The Philosophy of Consciousness and Evolutionary Psychology just to name a few.

Visionary Engineer: The Edgerton Digital Collection Project

The Edgerton Digital Collections (EDC) project is an ambitious and collaborative publishing venture, documenting the history of science and technology.  This project also celebrates the spirit of a great pioneer, Harold “Doc” Edgerton, inventor and professor emeritus at MIT.  This digital archive provides the first online access to Harold Edgerton’s research notebooks held by MIT, constituting the material record of an extraordinary man who shaped public perception about science and technology.

NNDB

NNDB is an intelligence aggregator that tracks the activities of people we have determined to be noteworthy, both living and dead. Superficially, it seems much like a “Who’s Who” where a noted person’s curriculum vitae is available (the usual information such as date of birth, a biography, and other essential facts.)

In short: future manifestations that are presently in the process of emerging are what Ars Electronica is interested in. Attention is never focused singularly on art, technology or society, but rather on their complex metamorphoses and interrelationships.

SpaceCollective

The program is open to artists, researchers, theorists, or anyone who works with land and land use issues in an innovative and engaging manner. Residents primarily work out of the CLUI facilities at Wendover, Utah, and explore and interpret the landscape of that unique and inspiring geographic region, which includes the Great Salt Lake and its desert and salt-flat environs.

NASA

NASA’s vision: To reach for new heights and reveal the unknown so that what we do and learn will benefit all humankind. To do that, thousands of people have been working around the world — and off of it — for 50 years, trying to answer some basic questions. What’s out there in space? How do we get there? What will we find? What can we learn there, or learn just by trying to get there, that will make life better here on Earth?

Fluid Interfaces Group

Why do we still use a keyboard and mouse to interact with digital information? This mode of human-computer interaction, invented more than 40 years ago, severely constrains our ability to access and interact naturally with digital content. Computer systems lack the contextual knowledge to offer relevant information when and where we need it. Further, traditional screen-based interfaces divert our attention in mobile and social situations. They are designed for a single user, and not well suited to accommodate collaborative activities.
