STADHI (Science & Technology + Art & Design Hybrid Innovation) is a transdisciplinary research collaboration based at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan, established with Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, UK.
Since establishing the Grow Lab at Central Saint Martins in 2019, we have invited scientists to share their research with our art and design students, opening it up to be reimagined and re-presented through a process of transdisciplinary ‘hacking’.
Making Waves: Rhythms, Patterns, Forces
Professor Masahiko Hara (Tokyo Institute of Technology) and Dr Thomas Iskratsch (Queen Mary University of London) shared their research on the dynamics, synchronisation and self-organisation of living systems.
Professor Wataru Hijikata (Tokyo Institute of Technology) and Dr Thomas Iskratsch (Queen Mary University of London) shared their research on heart disease, energy harvesting and cellular sensing.
We work together to develop hybrid methodologies and hacking practices to nurture new fields of inquiry across science, engineering, technology, art and design.
