5Hz Labs at Arnolfini - Imagining an alternative evolution of voice for social bonding

7 November 2014

5Hz is a collaborative project by artist Emma Smith, psychologist Laurence White, cognitive neuroscientist Nina Kazanina and musicologist Emma Hornby. Exploring the power of the voice to connect us to one another, the project imagines an alternative evolution of speech specifically for the purpose of social bonding.

In November you are invited to participate in a series of open language evolution workshops, talks and laboratory demonstrations by leading scientists on the topic of evolution, psychology and neuroscience of language and voice.

The events allow active engagement with the science and art through discussions and hands-on activities. The project funded by the Wellcome Trust and ESRC is a collaboration between artists and scientists, including Nina Kazanina from the School of Experimental Psychology.
