Midden is a research atelier. We conduct bespoke inquiries into human activity in its many moods.

Our backgrounds span the history, anthropology, and philosophy of medicine, technology, built structure, and the rough arts of keeping body and soul intact.

Do you really need to hear about human strategies of thermoregulation in Tasmania 40,000 years ago to form a picture of where the outdoor industry is headed? Perhaps not.

Will an awareness of the commentarial tradition surrounding the Inner Canon of the Yellow Emperor help you understand the future of psychedelic medicine? Unlikely.

But maybe you’ve gone through forecasting exercises in the past and come away with the sense you’d missed something. Then get in touch.

Midden is Carla Nappi and Josh Berson and friends.
