Inside the USC Annenberg Innovation Lab.
Scientists and artists often don’t talk to each other very much. Both solitary disciplines, with long periods of time spent in a lab or in a studio, don’t necessarily lend themselves to collaboration.
At the USC Annenberg Innovation Lab, they they have built an intersection of these two pillars. It’s a cross-disciplinary research hub for digital media, bringing corporations, researchers, and non-profits together. An intersection of art, science, design and engineering, where innovators interface with business leaders.
Essentially, it’s the optimum “think outside the box” spot in Los Angeles.
