Susana Cámara Leret and Mike Thompson's art, design and research practice explores metabolic processes, bodies and spaces. They experiment with the meanings and values that can be derived from alternative ways of experiencing built and mediated environments.

As Thought Collider they are motivated by emergent nature cultures. Their artworks span various media, generating experiential insights that confront the norm. This exhibition, in the new Alt-w LAB for creative technology, is the first solo presentation of their work in the UK.

National Museum of Scotland, Chambers St, Edinburgh

Cybraphon, the autonomous emotional robot band, is now part of the National Museum of Scotland's collection. The artist collective FOUND gifted Cybraphon to the nation in 2013. It can now be seen as a key bridging work between the new art & design and science & technology galleries.

Cybraphon obsessively googles itself every 15 seconds to see how popular it is. The results affect its emotional state which in turn affects its playing style. Twenty-five antique instruments and 60 robotic actuators then play music that FOUND has composed for each emotion.
