Innative Lab / Phygital Immersive Experiences

For Scope #78 INNATIVE LAB will introduce their artistic research on the phenomenon of interconnection between humans and with nature, focused on the study of ancestral practices and the use of cutting-edge sensing technologies. An insight into the interdisciplinarity within the combination of Neuroscience, Visual Arts and Performance Art.

About Innative Lab

Founded in 2017 in Berlin, INNATIVE LAB aims to create immersive experiences through the connection of art and sensing technologies. Parting from the fields of contemporary dance, performance art, neuroscience, audiovisual art and FashTech, INNATIVE LAB thinks of its experimental collaborations as ways of overcoming the barriers between disciplines. Its first performance, DEEP WAVES, adapts ancestral rituals with today’s technology to explore primal ways of connecting; ancient knowledge of influencing neuronal activity joins modern approaches of neuroscience.
