Our 2018 Art+Science Photo Contest

We’re thrilled to announce our grant from the Acton-Boxborough Cultural Council (ABCC) for a unique art + science study of two Massachusetts towns.


This study uses photography, biometric tools and new findings in neuroscience to show how our unconscious behaviors govern our experience of the built environment.

To engage the public, we’re starting with an open call for photos of buildings + houses + streetscapes (no people) that people love – or don’t like so much – in Acton and Boxborough.

2018ABCCphotocontestflyer.pngMany thanks to our collaborators for this first-of-its-kind STEAM (science | technology | engineering | arts | math) study;  AB PIP STEM (actonpip.org), the Discover Museum of Acton, Green Acton and the ABCC, a branch of the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC). Without their support and appetite for creativity, it wouldn’t have happened!
