Consulting, Keynotes, Speaking, Teaching, Workshops & Writing
Adam is open for debate, dialogue, discussion, and exploration with architects, designers, brands, companies, research labs, publications, galleries, and educational institutes around technological futures.
"This gets interesting when you start to imagine how developers and designers might translate this theory into software around digital photography in the realm of cybernetics. It will soon be possible to teach or programme a machine how to find something attractive or sexy. It isn't necessarily what that machine could do if it was created that's interesting; the big question here is what can we learn and improve about the way that we live with technology today by exploring the way that the human brain reads beauty, validation and status cultures."

“I’m curious about the exploration and development of this kind of project, in its ability to lead to a greater understanding and control of how we conceive designed objects and technologies. Be that new lipstick, jacket, or building designed around a detailed consumer profile, a digitalised wardrobe system, an internet dating service, a social media platform, a smartphone interface, or a genetic editing service.”
