Starts in Motion 2021 – Haseeb Ahmed

"Pneuma Inside and Out" selected for S+T+ARTS IN MOTION 2021

Haseeb Ahmed is an artist in residency in the MindSpaces project. His MindSpaces project, title Pneuma Inside and Out, was selected for this year S+T+ARTS IN MOTION round.

STARTS in MOTION has been designed as a key-steps path towards art-tech projects’ empowerment. During four months, the selected teams will be mentored on critical topics such as alternative business models, private and public funding opportunities, open and sustainable innovation, intellectual property and pitching. Our mentors will help them master the business side of their creative endeavors.

Through STARTS in MOTION, we will promote a greener and more sustainable economy, turned to the people, promoting diversity and respectful to the environment. We will support artists whose critical, aesthetic and visionary perspectives push the boundaries of technology and have the potential to change the shape of the economy of the future.

MindSpaces in Ars Electronica 2020

MindSpaces was part of the Ars Electronica Festival 2020, one of the biggest new media arts festivals in the world. As a remote and hybrid event this year, Ars Electronica consisted of various events, talks and symposiums around the world. MindSpaces consortium presented the project and its technologies during Garden Thessaloniki. MindSpaces consortium partners and artists also participated in talks and events during the festival.



Garden Thessaloniki

MindSpaces Garden hosted the MindSpaces project, funded by the European HORIZON2020-STARTS program. To encourage collaboration between research projects and artists, STARTS funded residencies for artists at technology institutions and for scientists and technologists at artists’ studios.

Ars Electronica Garden Thessaloniki hosted pre-recorded interviews of the six artists selected from the Open Calls, a pre-recorded demonstration of the MindSpaces platform, and a live demonstration of the DïaloG project held by the consortium’s digital artists Maurice Benayoun and Refik Anadol.

Hybrid Experiences: A Journey with Tangible Media Group

This tour took us to Garden Cambridge, Milan and Thessaloniki, as Tangible Media Group, MEET Digital Culture Center and European project MindSpaces gave us an insight into their projects working with VR, multi-sensing technologies and telepresence. Artists, researchers and scientists took a deep dive into their practice and unique perspectives of creating hybrid experiences between physical and digital space.
This event was a colaboration between Tangible Media Group (US), MEET Digital Culture Center (IT) and MindSpaces (INT).

"Using AI to speculate a future that belongs to all of us": An Immersion in Refik Anadol's universe

One thing sure is that Refik Anadol is incredibly talented and S+T+ARTS is very proud to count his studio as partner of MindSpaces, whose central objective is to create the tools and develop the solutions for adaptive and inclusive spaces that dynamically adapt to emotional, aesthetical and societal responses of end users, creating functionally and emotionally appealing architectural design.
