In the third FeLT Workshop Seminar of the year, FeLT PhD Hege Tapio will give a midterm presentation of her PhD project METABOLOME. We will be joined by ABRA Hub Project Coordinator Elizabeth Jochum and director of SymbioticA Oron Catts.
Approaching the blending of technology and biology by allowing explorations of emotional intelligence, biosensors, biochemistry and soft technology
By exploring how we might envision possible and speculative convergences of machine technology and human bodies, with focus on the areas involving emotions, sensing and empathy. The project will investigate research on affective computing technology, sensor/implant technology and include speculative enhancements for the human body.
The project will also include critical perspectives on possible issues related to the merging of technology with humans.
This midterm presentation will give insight to the findings driving the research, to hurdles along the path and also present, albeit in a preliminary phase, some of the artistic outcome.
