Welcome to STADHI
The future of innovation is hybrid
Science & Technology + Art & Design Hybrid Innovation
STADHI is a transdisciplinary research group based at the Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech), Japan, in close collaboration with Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, UK. Activities are primarily funded by the World Research Hub Initiative (WRHI), an innovation platform at Tokyo Tech.
The strategy of accepting uncertainty and noise, rethinking the situation, asking new questions and transforming them into energy is the forte of art thinking, and cannot be realized by conventional science and technology alone.
Our research group is creating a new framework to challenge thinking frames, perspectives, and theories currently adopted by researchers. We publish academic publications on specialist transdisciplinary subjects and on the “hybrid” research methodologies employed. We create original artwork and multimedia material from the fusion of art and design with science and technology, and we disseminate processes and findings through events and weekly blog posts.
