The Hum: Inventing Sensations

Public panel discussion which will look at ways lab based experiments within the brain sciences are being critically explored through art, design, architecture and dance to create embodied, performed and experiential encounters.

at The Bartlett School of Architecture, 6.02


Mihaela Mitrovic (Architect, cognitive scientist, neuroscientist and film scholar)

Matthias Sperling (Choreographer and performer)

Ava Aghakouchak (Architectural Designer)
