MSHR is a collaborative creative organism comprised of Birch Cooper and Brenna Murphy. The duo produces interactive installations, sculptures and ritualistic performances that place the human body into a dynamic relationship with sound and light, generating expanded sensory experiences.


Wu Juehui is a recipient of the TASML | Carroll Fletcher Residency Award  

Wu Juehui lives and works in Hangzhou. He is the cutting-edge artist of China’s new media art. In recent years, he focuses on the “potential interface” between art and science, between body and media in collaboration with institutes such as Tsinghua University, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Hangzhou Dianzi University. In 2009, Wu Juehui, in collaboration with TASML, started the long-term art project “Brain Station” based on BCI (Brain-Computer Interface) technology. 

Wu has participated in several national and international media art exhibitions and festivals, such as “ZERO1 Biennial”,” Translife – International Triennial of New Media Art”,“Synthetic Times – Media Art China 2008″, “Creators Project 2012”, “SHIFT- Electronic Arts Festival”.

In 2010, Wu Juehui and Shao Ding founded the art group “MeatMedia”, focusing on the “Emotional Interface” in an attempt to find a balance between the“Dry media”and the“Wet media”. Wu Juehui is also a co-founder of “UFO media lab” – the leading new media artist collective in China that focuses on the social application of new media art.

James Bridle is a writer, artist, publisher and technologist usually based in London, UK. His work covers the intersection of literature, culture and the network. He has written for WIRED, ICON, Domus, Cabinet, the Atlantic and many other publications, and writes a regular column for the Observer newspaper on publishing and technology. James speaks worldwide at events including SXSW (Austin), dConstruct (Brighton), LIFT (Geneva), Web Directions (Sydney) and NEXT (Berlin).

In 2011, he coined the term “New Aesthetic”, and his ongoing research around this subject has been featured and discussed worldwide. His work, such as the Iraq War Historiography, an encyclopaedia of Wikipedia Changelogs, has been exhibited at galleries in the Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia, and has been commissioned by organisations such as Artangel, Mu Eindhoven, and the Corcoran Gallery, Washington DC.

In 2012 he was a Happenstance resident at Lighthouse Gallery, lectured as part of the 4 Thought series on BBC Radio 4, contributed to the Istanbul Design Biennial and Guimaraes 2012 European City of Culture, and was adjunct professor on the Interactive Telecommunications Programme at New York University.



Ida Langkjaer is an international staff intern at Eyebeam and student at University of Copenhagen in Denmark. She is studying on the Master of Arts in Modern Culture and have explored and investigated topics such as the digitalization of cultural institutions, post-colonial/post-racial theory mainly related to visual arts, digital networks, and online archives or collections.

The internship should hopefully lead to finding a sustainable and interesting topic for her Master Thesis to revolve around.

Please don't hesitate to contact her if you have heard of or are in the process of doing projects that would inspire a thesis!

The DuKode Studio focuses on creative data transposition to many forms, including software, animation, print, and physical objects. It specializes in spatial visualization and wearable prototypes.

DuKode's project, MindRider, is a brain-reading bike helmet system that generates new kinds of health data and health sense-making at the individual and regional scale. Every MindRider helmet employs a distinctive combination of two head-based wearable technologies, the bike helmet and the EEG (electroencephalography) sensor, giving users new insight into their mental experiences as they ride.

The MindRider team, based at The DuKode Studio in Brooklyn, has extensive material experience, ranging from traditional techniques in wood/ceramics/yarns, to innovative techniques with 3D modeling/milling/printing and industrial/computational/conductive knitting. For Eyebeam, the MindRider team will introduce some of these fabrication techniques to MindRider, thus transitioning the helmet from the MIT Media Lab, where it originated, to Eyebeam’s design atelier, with the aim of creating an aesthetically and ergonomically enjoyable wearable. One experiment will explore computational knitting with conductive strands to fashion malleable KCBs (knitted circuit boards) as an alternative to inflexible PCBs.

Arlene Ducao is DuKode's Co-Founder, a Research Fellow at the MIT International Development Initiative, and a Team Member of the E14 Fund, a spinoff of the MIT Media Lab. She is MindRider's lead coordinator and makes a lot of headgear. Her background is in computer science and art (M.Sc. Massachusetts Institute of Technology; MFA School of Visual Arts; B.Sc. University of Maryland, B.M. University of Maryland).

Ilias Koen is DuKode's Co-Founder and also a Sensemaking Research Fellow at MIT IDI. He is MindRider's tech lead on both hardware and software. He's interested in technologies and art forms that can enhance visual cognition. He is also a printmaker, ceramicist, and woodworker with a background in computer science and art (MFA School of Visual Arts, BFA Athens School of Fine Arts, Greece).  

Josue Diaz III, a clothing designer who specializes in conceptual knitwear, joined DuKode to develop MindRider's wearability and aesthetics. He is interested in exploring the future of computational textiles.  He studied at Politecnico di Milano in Italy, and holds a BFA from the Fashion Institute of Technology.


Computational Fashion Fellow Keren Oxman is an artist and designer working at the intersection of Fine Arts Fashion and Fabrication Technology. She studied at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, and holds a B.A. from the Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem, and an M.A. from the Royal College of Art in London where she was a Clore Fellow. Her work experimentally investigates the formal mechanisms of generative design and their potential relation to the human body. Integrating traditional media with digital morphogenesis, her current interests attempt to combine disciplines such as textile craft with algorithmic behavior.

Keren is studying the development of generative textile morphologies through experimental multi-material 3D printing fabrication technology. The research and design will incorporate geometry with differentiated performance and will be undertaken with a group of consultants from arts-design and science-technology. These consultants include Prof. Neri Oxman of the MIT Media Lab and Prof. W. Craig Carter of MIT Dept. of Material Sciences and others.


Elisa Kreisinger is a Brooklyn-based pop culture hacker. Her work includes remixing Mad Men into feminists and The Real Housewives into lesbians. Elisa's 2012 US Copyright Office testimony helped win crucial exemptions to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, decriminalizing DVD ripping for artistic statements. She is a contributor to the forthcoming books, The Book of Jezebel and The Routledge Companion to Remix Studies both due out this year. Elisa speaks around the world on the power of remix and remaking pop culture.


MA Interaction Design, RCA, London / Ted Fellow

Chris Woebken uses futuring practices to create props, narratives and visualizations investigating the impacts as well as the aesthetic and social potentials of technologies.
