Kóan Jeff Baysa is a specialist physician, writer, art collector, Whitney Museum ISP Curatorial Alumnus, and AICA member who networks the areas of medical science and contemporary culture and produces interactive exhibitions and forums that focus on health perception, acculturation, sustainability, access to creative experiences and the sensate human being. He segued from a clinical practice in TriBeCa, New York to clinical research investigating olfactory stimuli and their potential beneficial effects on memory disorders and is an advocate of mashups that conflate ostensibly disparate subjects to fuel innovative thinking and design. Some of his goals are achieved through his company, SENSEight, and the Come to Your Senses Series. Others are manifest in two startups: Collectrium, that pioneered image recognition software for art, and Medical Avatar, a visually personalised avatar on a health app for handheld devices, where his current focus is the role of social media in patient engagement and formulating educational strategies for improving individual self-awareness and health betterment.
