slow immediate is the electrical and mechanical engineering duo, Xin Liu and Gershon Dublon. Their goal is to “spark unexpected, intimate moments of perception that bridge the inner self and the outside world.” The name "slow immediate" comes from the belief that taking things slow can make everything feel that much more immediate.

Gershon is an artist, electrical engineer and recent Ph.D. graduate from the MIT Media Lab Responsive Environments group. His background in sensor technologies and human-computer interaction led to his dissertation work, called Sensor(y) Landscapes, in which he introduces attention and context-aware devices and environments that make networks of distributed sensors feel like prosthetic extensions of perception.
