Dr. David R. Gruber
As an interdisciplinary researcher, I try to think broadly. I enjoy studying the social aspects of science and technology and analyzing technical and scientific documents. I have spent a lot of time learning how people use neuroscience in other field areas to build new theories, therapies, or products. More recently, I have been studying the ways that local environments shape and shift our affects - how pipelines, waterways, train systems, etc. lead to specific kinds of feelings and performances that have aesthetically related contours. Some of this concern is evident in my first book on brain art in the chapter on "neurosensuality"; however, I perform a more thorough exploration in my forthcoming book titled Splat. I also make digital artwork and play with multimedia composition.
