Nicole L'HuillierPhD Student & Research Assistantat MIT Media Lab
Transdisciplinary artist from Santiago, Chile. Currently based in Boston as a PhD researcher at the MIT Media Lab, Opera of the Future group. Her work explores spatial experience, perception and the relationship between sound & space, based on the idea of sound as a construction material of spaces, identity, and agency. She works at the intersection of art, music, architecture, science, and technology in order to open questions about possible futures, redefine how we perceive our environments, and most importantly: trigger connection and empathy between human and non-human agents. Nicole is also part of the MIT Media Lab Space Exploration Initiative, where she explores possible experimental forms and implications of art, expression, and culture as humans migrate to outer space. She is also an experimental musician, drummer, synth lover and one-half of the space pop duo Breaking Forms.
