Show Notes

Discover what’s possible when art is in the eye of the beholder… and a few other senses. 

Austin Lubetkin is an Autistic artist, aerospace-software engineer, and inventor. Austin has synesthesia, a perceptual phenomenon in which stimuli that would typically stimulate one sense can activate other senses at the same time. This has allowed him to create unique and accessible art experiences, some even meant to make people touch and hear colors. Austin uses his art to spread awareness of various mental conditions. 

He has already earned a patent as a software engineer, and has filed another patent for the first human brain computer interface that would allow a fully paralyzed individual to type and control a computer. 

In today’s conversation, we discuss: 

  • How Austin’s synesthesia influences his art

  • His series about mental health

  • The future of art and Machine Learning

  • Some of Austin’s inventions, including a sensory overload simulator

  • Accessible technology

  • Misconceptions about autism that he wants to break through his art

  • Advice for other autistic artists
