“I’VE BEEN A GIRL, AN IMMIGRANT DANCER. FROM YOUNG TO OLD, I’VE BEING MANY, MANY PEOPLE.”
BE ANOTHER LAB is an international, interdisciplinary collective dedicated to investigate embodied and telepresence experiments. We believe that the understanding of the “self” is related to the understanding of the “Other” and that more than individuals, we are part of a broader system called humanity. Under this perspective, we search for innovative possibilities on the concepts of embodied interaction, extended body and extended mind by mixing low-budget digital technology with social relations, Web and neuroscience methodologies.
We develop Creative Commons tools based on OpenKnowledge and are collaborating with experimental psychologists and neuroscientists to develop usage procedures to ‘the machine’ as a low-budget rehabilitation system, and also as an immersive role playing system.
