Join us on our extraterrestrial podcast as we welcome Daniela DePaulis, an interdisciplinary artist who pushes the boundaries of what is possible by merging art with neurotechnologies. In this episode, we'll delve into her unique projects that change our perception of reality and how she uses brain activity during deep sleep to connect to outer space. Daniela is a former contemporary dancer, a licensed radio operator, and a media artist who has exhibited internationally. She is currently Artist in Residence at the SETI Institute and the Green Bank Observatory in West Virginia, where she uses state-of-the-art radio telescopes to create her projects. This is a conversation you won't want to miss as we explore the intersection of art, science and technology with Daniela DePaulis.
