THE LAB

At Ahlquist Media Lab, we take the “Lab” part of our name seriously. We are committed to producing experiences that explore the absolute bleeding edge of technology and its impact on our society – economically, culturally and emotionally. We fuse the humanity of a creative studio with the strategic foresight of a futurist’s approach to work as a company that is both production studio and experimental tech firm.

Current subjects of inquiry:

  • Psychological and neurological¬† effects of virtual and mixed reality experiences – especially centered around empathy.
  • Sociological implications of mixed and virtual experiences over time.
  • Developing an understanding of the psychological and physiological impact of mixed reality techniques to innovate new forms of storytelling.
  • The impact of art (specifically science fiction literature and entertainment) on culture and political systems.
