My name is Haseeb Ahmed. I am an artist living and working in Brussels, Belgium. Since graduating from the MIT Program in Art Culture and Technology in 2010 I have been working to develop a practice that is deeply collaborative between artistic, scientific, and design disciplines. Towards these ends I have worked with geneticists to produce the Fish Bone Chapel commissioned by the Netherlands Genomics Initiative as a winner of the Designer and Artists for Genomics Award. My PhD in practice based arts involves a deep collaboration with engineers and physicists on the nature of fluid and the use of turbulence patterns for art. I am happy now to work with Beatrice de Gelder and the Brain and Emotion Laboratory on this project.
