The Glad Scientist



Puerto Rico


The Glad Scientist is the pseudonym of Puerto Rican new media artist Daniel Sabio. His works range from igniting live virtual reality concerts to fully immersive code-driven installations.

They have garnered diverse international attention, from ISEA (International Symposium of Electronic Art) to Bass Coast Festival and beyond, and have placed him in shows alongside astrophysicists, household names and internet stars alike.

He wields a BSc in Computational Media (Computer Science+Art) from Georgia Tech, founded the Art in Tech Atlanta Meetup group, and is a co-founder of VLSC Records, an international indie label. His unique perspectives on technology’s role in art and its connection to the human spirit stem from a bizarre mixture of subcultures fused with insights gained from studies in some of music’s richest cultures, including Ghana, Turkey, and Brazil. Now based in Berlin, he continues this exploration with a focus on immersive media and electronic music performance.

Currently The Glad Scientist is focused on the development of two projects:

Infinite ObserverVR experience designed for the blind and visually impaired. The narrative follows a ring of blind hackers who use sonic and vibrational tactics to disrupt the dominant visual culture that has corrupted modern society.

Balance – A virtual reality experience designed to cleanse each of the seven chakras through a self-paced observation of flexibility and balance. Half digital sculpture garden and half video game, subtle interactions guide the participant as they follow their intuition in an audiovisual journey.
