MIT Media Lab Director’s Fellow Viktoria Modesta posted an article on the MIT website about her experience as part of #MTFLabs: Performance and Body at #MTFBerlin.
In her words:
It was a brilliant community of people ranging from neuroscientists to musicians, to projection mapping and fashion designers. It was an orchestra of mediums, and with all the collaborative excitement surrounding us, we had to push it to the max.
