marta beauchamp

By focussing on the translation of neuroscience topics into visual and auditory experiences, Marta Beauchamp (born 1990, IT/UK) shapes an interface through which to materially encounter this process. She is interested in the difference between understanding based on keeping-in-mind and understanding through experiencing. Sound and objects allow her to inflate dense scientific topics to room-scale installations which offer more space and dimensions for comprehension.
