The episode provides insights into the year-long exchange between art and design studio Hyphen-Labs and neuroscientist John-Dylan Haynes. Working in his lab and with his team was crucial in developing the installation “PushMi PullYu,” which mediates between the fields of neuroscience, philosophy, and lay people’s understanding of neuronal processes.

In this episode, Haynes and Hyphen-Labs’ Carmen Aguilar y Wedge and Ece Tankal accessibly discuss complex topics such as swarm behavior (and whether machines can be programmed to do this too), the impact an individual can have on a collective, and the challenges presented by neuroscientific research.

The Speakers 

Hyphen-Labs is an international team of women of color working at the intersection of technology, art, and science. Its focus is on engaging with current societal discourses and scientific issues as well as technological developments. Founded in 2014 by the Mexican-American engineer Carmen Aguilar y Wedge and the Turkish architect Ece Tankal, the studio has collaborated with psychologists, programmers, artists, and scientists ever since. For PushMi PullYu, the artists collaborated with Dr. Mary Katherine Heinrich, swarm researcher and expert on artificial intelligence systems, who was responsible for the programming, and the IT studio Kai Lab, which hacked the Roombas using their own homemade hardware that sits on the machines like a crown.
