#MTFLabs invite some of the most brilliant and original minds to reinvent the way we interact, collaborate, create and communicate with each other. Creative thinking, technology and invention are at the heart of collaborations which typically focus on challenges such as transhumanism, synaesthesia, cymatics, or blockchain, in order to investigate what makes us better humans.
#MTFLabs have been run in partnership with MIT Media Lab, Ars Electronica Future Lab, #MusicBricks, with ground-breaking designers, artists and engineers, such as Viktoria Modesta, Anouk Wipprecht, Eska, Reeps One, Peter Kirn, Jasmine Idun Isdrake, Moritz Waldemeyer, and have been covered by WIRED, Make, Radio Eins, Midem, and Makery.
