Salvatore Passaro (musician and software developer) and Mahnaz Esmaeili (stage designer) founded mopstudio in 2010 to practice performing media and augmented mind.

Since then they have made declinations of this accumulating an ever-growing portfolio.

In simple terms the Augmented Mind is the mind, such as we know it (or think we know it) inside our heads, but externalized, shared, multiplied, accelerated, random accessed and generally processed connectively outside our heads.

The functions that we all thought were exclusively internal to us, like memory, that is the active recalling of anything, and imagination, that is the creation of images inside our heads, are actually emigrating to screens outside our heads, there to serve new purposes
