BeAnotherLab is an international anti-disciplinary group that aims at communicating and reproducing subjective experience for building empathy and bonding between people. Their work has been presented in a very wide variety of contexts, from arts, to conflict resolution and neuroscience; in Europe, the Americas the Middle East and Asia. They have been awarded a Honorary Mention from Ars Electronica (2014), a Laval Virtual Award (2014), finalists in the FastCo Design Awards (together with Google and MIT), and a N.I.C.E Award for Innovations, Culture and Creativity.
The group is committed to creating new models of collaboration and sustainability, not based on individuals but on the idea of sharing and expanding identities.
