Monsterhood is liberation.
All of life is an experiment.
Craft is dead and we must rebirth it.
Break (respect, re-make) the medium.
Play like children!
WHERE IS THE MAGIC?
Hi, I’m Alice.
Studying: Human Augmentation. Augmentation as a lens for living.
Working on augmenting: our capacity for self-determination (subversion, change), interpersonal connection (love, oneness), and creativity (discovery, language, multiplicity).
Through developing: real magic, life games, human engeineering, body-machine interfaces, human-computer systems, extended reality, generative AI, experiments in the intersection of art & technology.
In a past life: wrote & illustrated novels, developed nanomaterials, taught courses.
Thinking about: cyborghood.
Some fun things: AR-controlled supernumerary limb, natural language XR dev tool, human-AI co-creative tools, Augmentation Lab, Residency, AR/VR Developers, Conflux Collective.
I’m compelled by the magical (the deeply emotional, the bizarre, and the seemingly impossible). I believe thoughtful design of augmentation systems can reveal, enhance, transform the latent magic within and between us. This devotion to magic guides my life & my work.
I am always hungering for new adventures. If anything I have mentioned resonates with you and you’re interested in working / adventuring together, shoot me an email at acai at college dot harvard dot edu.
