From Walls to Walkways: DIWOD & Open Src Everything, Syncretic Methods for Exploring Consciousness Festivals, research centers, and institutes are emerging that integrate art, science, and engineering in ways that activate local communities to creatively engage in cross-disciplinary dialogues and hands-on learning projects in hopes of influencing their culture and improving their social and physical environments. Medialab-Prado, Dorkbot and Hacker Spaces, SCIIART at UCLA, SymbioticA at the University of Western Australia, are a few that bring together a range of fields to form syncretic dialogues through research and creative practice. The FUNcolab is a transdisciplinary initiative at Gallaudet University with the goal of bringing together art, science, and theater into a unified space that fosters philosophical exchange, creative investigation, and hands on collaboration. Max Kazemzadeh is an emergent media artist and tenure-track Assistant Professor of Art & Media Technology at Gallaudet University who investigates the relationships between art, technology, and consciousness in his research, creative experiments, and interactive installations. He recently founded an interdisciplinary art, science, performance research center at Gallaudet University called the FUNCOLAB. He is pursuing a Ph.D. within the Planetary Collegium at the University of Plymouth, UK where he is investigating Apophenia and Pareidolia as counterpoints in modeling creativity and deriving meaning from patterns of unintentional gesture.
