Heidi Boisvert, former artist in residence at Waag

'How I'm using biological data to tell better stories'

Heidi Boisvert is a new media artist, game designer and researcher. In 2011, she was an artist in residence at Waag, where she worked on embodied learning in the context of social impact and gaming. 

Her TEDtalk, which touches on the subject of embodied learning, is now online. The talk is about measuring how our brains and bodies respond to different types of media. These biological data tell us the specific narrative ingredients that inspire empathy and justice - and thereby can spark social change.
