Jb Labrune is a designer and researcher specializing in the development and study of creative processes in the context of new programmable materials, critical design and avant-garde places mixing artists, scientists and thinkers. His research focuses on the notion of “exaptation,” the way in which users of technologies reconfigure and hack them, producing original and unexpected functions and uses. He completed his PhD at INRIA and postdoc at MIT, then became a researcher at Bell Labs and interaction design professor at ENSAD (Arts Décos School). He then joined SciencesPo University as a lecturer while launching his practice at Radical Design Studio. He has organized many “hybrid” workshops in art and sciences venues around the world, including Arts Décos, Beaux-Arts, Palais de Tokyo, Mains d’Oeuvres, Mediamatic, Interaction Design Institute Ivréa, IMAL, Hangar, Hyperwerk, Akademie Schloss Solitude and MIT Medialab.
