● WELCOME TO IMAGING MIND
Imaging Mind is a futurist agency and visual culture community dedicated to uncovering the future of imaging and how it manifests itself in technology and society.
We accelerate innovation in the visual space by orchestrating meaningful interactions between ecosystem players through an experiential set of activities and content in a narrative driven value network. For this, we offer a narrative driven platform and related services, making sense out of contemporary developments in visual culture, entrepreneurship, exponential technology and design, focused around the future of imaging.
In addition to publishing our latest findings and research through our newsletter, we run events designed to bring the visual community together. Over the last year, we have hosted a series of pan-European events in major European cities including London, Paris, Berlin and Amsterdam. We are working to bring Imaging Mind to additional cities. Care to join? We can always use an extra pair of eyes.
Imaging Mind connects likeminded people within the Imaging Mind Community to explore the empowering and disruptive capabilities of visual culture and technology. What the community uncovers, we translate back to the community.
The community knowledge can be found in distilled form during our events, meetups, workshops, hackathons and newsletters. For dedicated businesses we provide outside-in strategies, consultancy services and curated technology & culture reports on the field of imaging.
Did you know humans process visual information 90% faster than other forms of information? Visual information isn’t just pretty, it’s vitally important. To uncover the next level in visual information, Imaging Mind wants to accelerate visual culture and technology by exchanging knowledge.
● VISUAL IS THE NEW NORMAL
The importance of visual information cannot be understated.
Visual culture is booming. Pictures are the new lingua franca now that nearly everyone has access to a camera. Whether it’s built into your smartphone, strapped to your helmet or in-between your hands, cameras are everywhere. Everything and everyone can create pictures, organise them, curate them and derive information from them.
Culture has changed to accommodate this explosion of imagery: meeting notes are photographed in Evernote, people express themselves through selfies on Instagram, conversations are made through transient pictures in Snapchat and people collect and share their images as if Pinterest was a giant sticker album. Interfaces become more visual, mere text is seen as inadequate and you better supply pictures ‘or it didn’t happen’.
This is our new world and it is inherently visual.
