NeuroSpeculative AfroFeminism (NSAF) is an award winning three-part digital narrative that sits at the intersection of product design, virtual reality and neuroscience. Inspired by the lack of multidimensional representations of black women in technology, the VR experience is set in a Neurocosmetology lab where they are pioneering techniques of brain optimization and cognitive enhancement.

Created by and for women of colour, Hyphen-Labs presents a multi-layered possible future that transcends the constraints of the present; a realm which The New Yorker has called “another plane of consciousness.”


Hyphen-Labs is an international collective working at the intersection of technology, art, science, and the future. Through their global vision and multi-disciplinary backgrounds, they are driven to create engaging ways to explore planetary-centered design. In the process, they challenge conventions and stimulate conversations, placing collective needs and experiences at the center of evolving narratives.
