NeuroSpeculative AfroFeminism

About

Enter Brooks' Salon, a beauty salon of the future, and peruse a line of speculative low- to high-tech beauty products while waiting for your appointment to get a set of “Octavia Electrodes,” transcranial extensions designed to make the brain’s synapses more excitable and primed to increase neuroplasticity. Participate in a live study on your way out to help Hyphen-Labs better explore the neurocognitive impact of your visit.
