Since 2013 artist/designer/researcher Danielle Roberts develops tools for awareness at Awareness Lab. These tools support psychological well being and holistic flourishing using the latest technologies and artistic components. Projects by Awareness Lab are positioned at the intersection of art, science, design, technology and spirituality and emerge from multi-disciplinairy collaboration.
The tools may take the form of wearables, interactive installations, artistic visualisations or performances. Data always plays an important role. By allowing users to experience data they can expand there awareness. They learn aspects about themeselves and their environment which influence us but they usally remain hidden. Transforming and feeding back this data may give us deeper insight into the processes which drive and surround us and help us realise our human potential.
Danielle is best described as a fundamental design researcher. In the domain of transformative technology, her focus is on researching and designing interventions which support self-transcendence. Coming from an artistic background most of her work is self-commissioned and driven by a strong vision. Her ultimate goal is to make self-transcendence and self-actualisation attainable for as many people as possible. Her interventions are tools which may support ordinary people to realise their extraordinary potential.
Danielle is a generalist who can combine knowledge and skills from different fields to realise her interdisciplinary projects. Her roots lie in sculpting and monumental design. Late last century she became fascinated by the emerging internet and worked in that field for 12 years as a web designer/developer and artist. With the rise of open-source electronic development platforms, she started integrating sensors technology and artistic data visualisation in her wearables, installations and performances.
Besides running her lab she currently works as a lecturer and researcher at Avans University of Applied Sciences. She has recently graduated from the master course Crossover Creativity at HKU University of the Arts Utrecht. Read more on LinkedIn.
